90 Points James Halliday
Medium to full red-purple; a powerful, concentrated bouquet with excellent fruit and oak balance and integration; the palate is well balanced and composed, with briar, chocolate and red berry fruit together with generous vanilla oak, finishing with moderate tannins. A typical '94 vintage, not fleshy, but powerful. A prolific gold medal winner in shows. Drink to 2006.
