Average critic rating : 86.5 points



This wine has continued to surprise me, although it is hardly a profound effort for the vintage. The color shows considerable amber at the edge, but the wine shows nice, sweet cedar, ground pepper, and herbaceous notes intermixed with strawberry and black cherry jam. The wine is medium-bodied and supplely textured with some attractive levels of glycerin still present. It does not have the complexity of the 1983, but there is a fleshiness and lush texture that is very disarming. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 11/00. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate January 2003



Not as good as I remember, but pretty and delicious. Medium-ruby in color, with chocolate and ripe berry aromas. Medium-bodied, with medium, velvety tannins and a medium, smooth finish.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1998
