Very deep garnet-black colour. The nose is a little closed giving moderately intense aromas of blackberry, ripe cassis, freshly cracked black pepper and a touch of cedar. The palate reveals this wine’s potential with buckets of juicy, warm berry fruit seasoned with a smattering of earth and spice. Finely structured giving medium to firm, tightly knit tannins and medium+ acidity. Very long, purely fruited finish.

Dark color. Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, spice and tobacco. Loads of plum. Medium- to full-bodied, with very integrated and refined tannins. Long. This really builds on the palate. This is better than the 2000 and 1990. Only time will tell if it's better than the 1989.
