Robert Parker 89
The 1989 is the most well-balanced wine of this trio, but its fruit does not appear to be sufficient to stand up to the wine’s high alcohol and aggressive style. None of these wines offers much delineation, so cellaring should prove beneficial as they do have admirable levels of extract. Last tasted 11/94
Luminous copper. Full and round and very opulent. Round and full and clean and open on the nose. Though not desperately subtle. More almonds on the nose. Very round, not especially complex but clean and bumptious and again with a slightly burnt undertow. Full finish, rather opulent and exciting. Already quite evolved.
Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016
