TN: 1995 Simi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

3/15/2009 rated 93 points: Dark blackish edges with just the slightest sign of age. The nose began as as habit to say ‘old wine’, which anyone who knows me, knows I’m not thrilled. But then this did an amazing transformation within 30 minutes. It was super pure and elegant and a truly memorable bottle of 14 year old cab.
Admirable amounts of fruits: black currants, black cherry cola with some kirsch royal and a touch of crème de cassis. There was a touch of cedar, and tobacco notes with some tar and soy. Everything was hitting at all the right levels. A 45 second finish. Glad we did not judge this on first impressions.

I hate soy notes, but what’s “tat”?
