The 1978 Cos d'Estournel lacks the charm and finesse that most readers associate with more recent efforts from this property. The color has taken on orange/brown hues. The nose reveals this vintage's herbaceousness, to the point of being vegetal. Leathery, dusty, coarse, intrusive tannins overwhelm the wine's fruit. Medium-bodied and fully mature, this wine will keep for a decade more, but it is barely above average in quality. Last tasted, 6/93. Wine Advocate.August, 1993
