Will it dry out? The color is still a healthy brilliant ruby, and while the wine remains relatively backward, there are ripe aromas of spicy black-cherries, minerals, and vanillin. Still austere, with noticeably high acidity, this medium-weight Ausone needs another decade of cellaring. The long finish remains dominated by its formidable tannin and acidity. Although showing better than it did several years ago, the 1979 appears to be a very good rather than profound example of Ausone. Last tasted, 5/93. Aug 1993, www.robertparker.com
