Critic Notes

Pleasant claret. Medium ruby-garnet color. Berry, mineral and spice aromas. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Well made.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. 22,000 cases made.-James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000

Score: 87-/100Wine Spectator

Behind the intensely oaky nose of the 1990 there appears to be good extract, a forward, even flattering personality, and a charming, moderately endowed finish. Feb 1993, www.robertparker.com

Score: 85-/100Robert Parker
