Time passes. Despite rollercoaster weather that saw an early blossoming, a wet spring and a lukewarm summer, the grapes reached extremely satisfying levels of ripeness. Solid tannins, tight acidity, good structure: 1988 is a good vintage.
Rated 96 Points Wine Spectator
A definition of finesse. So opulent and seductive that the smoothness and delicacy of the texture come almost as a surprise. Explosive blackberry, currant, plum and vanilla aromas are only the beginning, and the subtle echoes of fruit and spice carry over on the featherlight finish. Tannins are beautifully integrated. Should keep improving past 2000. 16,000 cases made.
