DR94 "Surprisingly dark colour and the aromas are still reasonably youthful, with notes of pomegranate and raspberry shaded with cedar and smoke. The feel on the palate is light in body and somewhat astringent, with fresh acidity and moderate length. Ultimately, the wine is not lacking ripeness but is a decidedly lighter style and not for long ageing. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The cool, wet 2002 growing season was derided early on by observers, including myself, but this is a thoroughly pleasant wine." CC for DR Jul 2023

"Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn't it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration." RP Apr 2005
