Following some mediocre performances from cask, the 1994 has turned out to be better in bottle. A dark ruby color is followed by a spicy, moderately tannic, well-concentrated, elegant wine reveals some tannin, but much more fruit than in the past. It should be drunk between 2000-2008.

A harmonious wine with plum, berry and raspberry aromas and flavors, and fine tannins. Drinkable now, better in 1998. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1997.
