The 1989 Canon will not approach the 1982 in terms of concentration and complexity, yet it does resemble a synthesis in style between the 1985 and 1986. Deep ruby/purple in color, with a rich, spicy, new oak, black currant bouquet of moderate intensity, this full-bodied, rather burgundian-textured wine is tannic and deeply endowed. The flavor extraction as well as purity of taste is impressive. Anticipated maturity: Now-2008. Last tasted, 5/95. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1



Starts up slowly on the palate, then builds to lovely, sweet fruit flavors. Dark-ruby color. Dusty, smoky, gamy and berry aromas open to a full-bodied palate with loads of ripe fruit and chocolate and a long, sweet aftertaste. A beauty.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now through 2006. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999



Looks quite evolved at the rim but tastes as though it will go quite a bit further. Definitely dry and traditional rather than luscious and modern. Medium body. Not as obviously ripe as most 1989s.www.jancisrobinson.com, 21 May 2010
