It reminds me of a more concentrated 1985 with nearly the character and size of the prodigious 1989. It possesses the lowest percentage of Grenache (30%) of any Chateauneuf du Pape and the highest percentage of Mourvedre (40%). For example the 1993 Beaucastel which was so tasty early in life is now locked in a profoundly dumb stage. I am not sure the 1994 will ever close down as much because it is such a sweet rich thick chewy wine with full body and a superb nose of smoky black fruits Asian spices licorice olives and herbs. Full concentrated and lush it should drink well for 15-20 years. Last tasted 6/96.
