A deep garnet core with very little aging on the rim. The nose is quite simple: cedar and a little tobacco. Not much here. But the palate is much better: very good concentration, very cohesive and harmonious with good acidity. This reminds me of the 1970 (though without the finesse.) A charming cedar, earthy mid-palate with the tannins seeming to have just softened. Perhaps it is only just becoming ready to drink? May 2003, www.robertparker.com
