And lastly, the 1988 Hermitage is an elegant, perfumed and mineral-laced effort that’s drinking at point. Giving up plenty of sweet cherry and red currants, leather, crushed rock and hints of green olive, it has no hard edges, solid mid-palate richness and a focused finish. It’s a mature, elegant and classy Hermitage to drink over the coming 4-5 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Good youthful deep red. Perfumed multifaceted aromas of crystallized black cherry cassis gibier and smoke.

Perfumed multifaceted aromas of crystallized black cherry cassis gibier and smoke. Fruity and precise in the mouth with amazingly youthful dark berry flavors and terrific purity and thrust. Really razor-sharp with more intensity than sheer size. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and terrific cut. This has the balance and stylishness of best 1988 red Burgundies.
