I will reiterate that it deserves more respect. The bouquet is ebullient and joyful with mint-tinged black fruit, sous-bois and cedar. The palate is a little tighter than previous bottles and it would have benefitted from say, another hour of aeration. Still, there is plenty of crisp black fruit interlaced by graphite and tobacco, with a persistent, rounded finish that will leave you satisfied.

Wonderful tobacco leaf and fruit aromas follow through on the palate of this handsome wine. Has a lovely silky fruity texture. Drink now or hold.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. (JS)

This wine has turned out even better than I predicted. The wine still shows some rustic tannin in the finish, but the gorgeous nose of caramel, cedar, spice box, black currant, and earth is followed by a dense, full-bodied, muscular, expansively flavored wine that still possesses considerable tannin. The wine is gorgeous to drink with several hours of decanting, but is still not at its peak of maturity. Anticipated maturity: Now-2018.

Red-ruby. Aromatic nose of currant and leather. Sweet and round with a slightly candied roasted fruit character. Nicely full and rich in the mouth. Finishes with lush smooth tannins.

Finishes with lush smooth tannins. Not far behind the Leoville-Barton in quality and perhaps better for current consumption. 89 points
