For this event, we will be exploring the 1994 vintage of Bordeaux and Port.
The following are the details (courtesy of Robert Parker Jr) of the exquisite wines that we will be featuring:

Chateau Lynch Bages 1994
“Deep ruby-colored with a purple centre, this wine displays ripe blackcurrant fruit, with no vegetal or weedy notes. Medium to full-bodied and ripe, with surprising softness, fatness and precociousness for a wine from this vintage. Lynch Bages 1994 possess well-integrated toasty oak, as well as attractive
hedonistic style that should please the followers of this opulent Pauillac.” (88pts)

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 1994
“Grand-Puy-Lacoste, usually loaded with character and personality, has enjoyed three fine vintages in 1993 to 1995. The 1994 has turned to be an outstanding effort for this estate. The wine reveals even more flesh than it did prior to bottling, as well as the high tannin that marks many of this vintage’s wine. The color is an opaque ruby/purple and the nose offers up a gorgeously pure blast of sweet cassis fruit.
Medium to full bodied, with layers of extract, this classic, rich, powerful Pauillac will be at it best between 2003-2020.” (90pts)

Chateau Montrose 1994 (Magnum Format)
“An opaque purple color suggests a wine of considerable intensity. One of the most successful 1994s of the Northern Medoc, the wine’s closed aromatics offer jammy black fruits, plums, spices and earth. On the palate, there is impressive extract, purity and copious amount of sweet blackcurrant fruit nicely balanced by moderate yet ripe tannin. Medium bodied, with excellent to outstanding concentration, this impressive
Montrose should be close to full maturity with another 4-5 year of cellaring.” (91pts)

Chateau Margaux 1994
The wine has turned out to be a classic, long-lived Margaux. The opaque purple color is followed by this estate’s tell-tale aromas of flowers, black currants, licorices and smoky oak. This dense, powerful, closed wine is a true vin de gard. It needs a decade of cellaring, but it should last for 25 to 35 years.” (92pts)

Dow’s 1994
“The massive 1994 is unquestionably the finest Dow I have tasted since 1977. This opaque purple-colored wine is not as developed or flamboyant as Fonseca but it is super concentrated and multi-layered, with huge masses of fruit and some tannin in the finish. This is a slightly drier style than Fonseca or Graham’s, but it appears to be a classic, majestic, enormously constituted 1994 that should age effortlessly for three decades or more.
It is one of the stars of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2004 – 2030.” (96pts)
