92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 1994 Trailside is aging beautifully and is still a handful of years away from its period of peak drinkability. The deep and complex nose offers up a superb mélange of red and black cherries, a touch of chocolate, cigar smoke, lovely soil tones, coffee and a deft touch of spicy new oak (now flawlessly integrated). On the palate the wine is full-bodied, suave and rock solid at the core, with a very classy profile, impeccable depth and focus and a very long, moderately tannic and complex finish. While it is not a crime to drink this wine today, I would not hesitate to hold off on bottles in the cellar for another five or six years, as there is clearly a lot more to come. A fine, fine bottle. 2016-2040. (May/Jun 2011)"
