Wine was one of the biggest productions and source of enrichment in the roman empire. This trade was the most important one, as the italy could not assume its own consuption. The culture of the vines itself was different : different sorts of pergolas, vines growing on trees and another philosophy of the plant considering as it was more than a vegetal. Sometimes vines were married with trees to take their strength. Many sorts of wines existed in roman antiquity, from ones from a single place, family of wines with local interpretations or aromatised recipes. Two things let the use of drinking wine growing : creation of a social hierarchy in Rome and use of wine as a medicine. As important and rich people tryed to be unique and receive there hosts with luxury, some famous people have elaborated a taste hierarchy between the wines. As many authors described the use of wine in medicine and prescribe different wines for each disease, Pline tell one of is friends to drink a glass af mulsum every morning to keep youth. Read less

Opened based on Parker vintage recommendation, and comments here. Upon opening and a few minutes of occasional swirl, enjoyed lovely strawberry/cherry/blacberry fruit combination -- quite lovely and very ripe; along with typical cigar box and smoke. Color is a medium rusty burgundy with no obvious bricking. Almost no seepage in to the cork. Very well bottled - could have sat another decade. Taste was mild and dry with sweet tannis. Not much fruit showing initially, tobacco was primary flavor through mid-palate. Finish lasts a good 40 seconds or more. Mouthfeel is good, but not as much glycerin as in better vintages. Will put away for a day and try again. Tasted again on 8/25 and 8/27. On 2nd day, nose was gone, but fruit that was apparent in nose had transferred somewhat to the palate, making it more interesting. My third tasting showed the most balance of all with fruit flavors mingling with the tobacco -- but only while the wine was a bit cooler than room temperature. Once the wine reached room temperature tobacco was the overwhelming flavor. This wine tasted best when accompanying a meal -- it is not a "drink-alone" wine. [88]

Balance, balance, balance. I'm not always one for such controlled wines as Bordeaux, but this wine is truly lovely. And despite its age, it should be great for a while yet.

Dark ruby/purple-colored, with a crushed, pure cassis aroma, this excellent, medium to full-bodied wine reveals sweet fruit on the attack, plenty of tannin, but not the inner-core of richness and density exhibited by such other 1994 Pauillacs as Pich...

Tasting Notes:

A ruby-colored wine with a complex nose that is at once earthy, toasty, and floral. It has a mellow, soft flavor with a surprisingly long finish.
