Wine Advocate #109 Feb 1997 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 92 Drink: Now Both the 1989 and 1990 vintages performed up to the quality I expected. The 1989 may be even better than I noted in my early reviews, although I have always rated it as one of the top wines of the vintage, and a notable "sleeper." The 1989 can be drunk now, but it will be even better after another 1-3 years of cellaring. It exhibits an opaque purple color, a sweet, black-raspberry, mineral, and toasty oak-scented nose, dense, medium to full-bodied flavors that possess terrific purity and harmony, and a spicy, long, sweet, tannic finish. This beautifully made, extracted wine is an ideal candidate for drinking now, and over the next few years.
