Winemaker Notes

Comparable in quality to the 1991 Dominus, the 1994 is a deeply colored, dense wine with substantial but supple tannins. Luscious to drink now, its concentration suggests a long future.

Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

RP 99
The Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-brick colored, this has quite a perfumed nose with notes of potpourri, game, anise, baking spices and kirsch plus hints of toast and yeast extract. Generously fruited and full bodied, it offers a medium-firm level of grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long, layered finish.

Saturated deep red-ruby. Knockout nose combines currant, Cuban tobacco, earth, tar, bacon fat, cedar, leather and game; conveys an impression of totally ripe, almost roasted fruit. Lush and sweet; already offers extraordinary inner-mouth flavor and great depth. One of those rare wines that too big for the mouth. Finishes with great velvety texture and magical persistence. Mouthdusting, building tannins coat the entire palate.
