This consignor grew up among the vineyards in the Niagara region and has fond memories of eating grapes off the vines at her friend’s family farm. It was during her 20s that she learned to appreciate wine, travelling through France, Italy and eastern Europe for business. In her 60s she began to collect wine seriously, some shipped to her by business associates and others purchased from wine merchants and collectors. The bottles have been meticulously stored in a custom designed wine cellar and were then moved into 2 temperature-controlled wine cabinets.
The score for 1994 Vieux Chateau Certan Pomerol is 92 from Robert Parker and the tasting note - Three separate tastings of this wine suggested that, along with the 1990 and 1986, the 1994 is one of this property's strongest efforts over the past 35 years. It is a dark, dense, purple-colored wine with a moderately intense, complex nose of spices, herbs, olives, black fruits, and subtle new oak. The wine possesses outstanding extraction of flavor, medium to full body, a sense of grace and overall balance, and moderate tannin in the long, chewy finish. Cellar it for 4-5 years to shed some of its tannin
