Average critic rating : 87.0 points



The 1989 has gone into a hard, tannic, tough stage that suggests considerable patience will be necessary. The ruby/purple color is sound, and the bouquet of toasty, smoky oak, chocolate, and super-ripe cassis is followed by a medium-bodied, rich, extracted wine with ferocious tannins and good acidity. This is a large-scaled, more traditionally-styled wine that will need at least a decade of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2018. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 85



A delicious '89. Ruby-colored center and a brick-red edge. Lovely ripe fruit, with hints of mushroom and earth aromas. Medium-bodied and round, sporting a lovely velvety texture.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now through 2004. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999
