1994 La Mission Haut Brion - Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition - Jan 2003: A superb La Mission from a difficult vintage, this wine shows classic scorched earth notes intermixed with a hint of dried herbs, pepper, sweet tobacco, and smoky black currant and cherry fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, with loads of glycerin, surprising depth, and no evidence of dilution or vegetal tannins. Anticipated maturity: Now-2015. Last tasted, 9/02.
