Critical Acclaim

"Saturated medium ruby. Very black aromas of cassis, licorice and violet, plus a whiff of game. Dense, thick and youthful, with a compelling layered texture and major palate impact. But doesn't have quite the clarity or class of the '85 tasted alongside it. Very long, palate-staining finish features big but thoroughly ripe tannins. May ultimately merit a higher score. Drink 2008 through 2025. Rating 93(+?) points."
