WS98
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
A fabulous wine; one of the first great Las Cases. Full-bodied and rich with the tannins extremely well integrated into an impressive background of fruit. Give it time.--Cabernet Challenge. Best after 2004.

This is one of my favorite vintages of Las Cases for present day consumption. The wine reveals a youthful deep ruby/purple color followed by a classic Las Cases bouquet of pain grille lead pencil minerals and ripe black currants. Medium to full-bodied with outstanding concentration and soft tannin this is a classic fleshy 1985 that reveals none of the potential dilution noticeable in many wines from this vintage. At one time I thought this might turn out to be a modern day clone of the 1953 but it possesses a lot more flesh and intensity. Anticipated maturity: Now-2015. Last tasted 3/97</P>
