This small estate continues to turn out remarkably rich unctuously-textured thick powerful wines that brilliantly balance power and intensity with elegance and finesse. The 1988 offers the most refined aromatic profile and the tightest structure. All three wines share opulent full-bodied exotic lavishly rich personalities moderate sweetness (the 1990 is the sweetest) and huge quantities of extract glycerin and alcohol in their finishes. All three wines are also extremely young and unevolved. They can be drunk now but purchasers are advised to wait until the turn of the century and enjoy them over the following two decades.</P>

Attractively balanced and distinctively floral lilac notes marrying nicely with the orange-peel melon and honey flavors. Medium-to-full bodied. Drinkable now.
