The 1992 offers copious toasty vanillin notes in its fruity nose, as well as a fine dark ruby color. While lighter and more one-dimensional than usual, it is concentrated, soft and oaky. It should drink well for 7-8 years. Dec 1994, www.robertparker.com
Lots of tobacco and some pretty plum, berry character. Medium in body, adding medium tannins and a cedary, mineral finish. Wine Spectator, 15 Apr 1995.
