Eight-thousand cases were produced from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Cabernet Franc 12% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. In this vintage 174 days passed between bud break and the harvest a remarkable period of time for any wine region in the world. The 1994 is a strikingly thick compellingly rich wine with the texture of a great Pomerol despite being made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine exhibits a dense purple color and an incredibly fragrant nose of jammy black fruits spice smoke and loamy truffle-like scents. In the mouth it is full-bodied with thrilling levels of extract and richness but no sense of heaviness or harshness. This seamless Dominus possesses no hard edges as its acidity tannin and alcohol are beautifully meshed with copious quantities of ripe fruit. This wine offers early drinking yet has the potential to last for 30+ years...

Distinctly sauvage aromas of redcurrant, coffee, leather, game and spicecake. Suave, seamless and fully mature, offering a plush texture and moderate sweetness to its slightly decadent flavors of currant, leather, smoke, mocha, earth and fresh herbs. This wild boy is at its apogee right now, although some tasters may find it too funky. Finishes classically dry, with dusty sweet tannins and considerable sex appeal.
