TASTING NOTES

"A huge, seamless wine of fabulous elegance. Deep, dark-ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberries, spices, mushrooms and bark. Full-bodied and extremely silky, with a long, long finish. Seductive as hell.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2002." Wine Spectator

"A wonderful depth of fruit with very firm and dense tannins. It has so much character of olives, spices, and berries. It's the wine’s freshness and intensity that won me over the 1990 Cos." JamesSuckling.com

"Full medium ruby. High-pitched, perfumed aromas of dark berries, minerals and violet; very cabernet. Rich, dense and youthful; broad and beefy, with cassis, black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes very sweet and long, with fine tannins spreading out impressively to coat the palate. A great showing. Drink now through 2015." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Good depth of garnet with some brick at the rim. Leafy, herbal and cedary nose with a firm but non-aggressive grip. Not as rich on the mid palate as the Lynch Bages or the Las Cases. Tannins seem a bit abrupt at the end but the fruits slides in underneath and persists. Later: more coffee and a hint of iron. But seems sweeter than on first tasting and longer."
