1994 produced 4,863 cases from a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This is one of the great vintages of the 90s, and Spottswoode hit the bullâ€™s-eye with this opaque, ruby/purple-colored wine that still has incredible youthfulness and vibrancy. Fabulous fruit intensity, blackcurrants, black cherries and blackberry, along with charcoal, chocolate and graphite, are all present in this superb, full-bodied, stunningly multidimensional wine that is only now approaching mid-adolescence at age 22. This wine has at least 25-30 more years of life left in it. It is a great one.
99 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pleasantly balanced, rich and polished, it's in perfect drinking shape now, with well-defined currant and black cherry fruit, smooth, integrated tannins and a long, complex, elegant aftertaste that gives it a sense of grace and finesse. Finishes with a nice touch of cigar box.
