3-Liter Bottle

98 Points - Robert Parker

"The 1994 boasts an inky/purple color along with a glorious nose of black raspberries, blackberries, and black currants that is still somewhat primary despite nearly 18 years in bottle. The Phelps team kept this cuvee in 100% new French oak for 28 months. Its magnificent structure, intensity, and purity of fruit, ripeness, balance combined with authoritative power and the magnetic appeal of this full-bodied, Bordeaux-styled wine are extraordinary. This amazing effort is just coming into its best years, and should drink well for at least another 15-20 years." - Robert Parker
