Exotic dried fruits complicated by minerals cedar cigar box and nuts on the nose. Huge dense and solid with great sappy redcurrant and wild strawberry sweetness buffered by powerful acids. With its huge concentration and extraordinarily chewy extract this has fruit of steel. The wine's explosive extremely long finish and great thrust go beyond 99.99% of the world's wines.

The 1989 Unico, a blend of 80% Tinto Fino and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon picked early from 30th September, has a gorgeous, minty bouquet with blackberry, a touch of blueberry, crushed violets and a little strawberry jam. It blossoms with aeration in the glass. The palate is smooth and rounded on the entry: caressing and voluminous in the mouth. The fruit is very pure with notes of strawberry, Tiptree raspberry jam, marmalade and quince. It has great weight towards the finish with orange cordial and a hint of mango. However, it does not have the tension or focus of the 1994 or the 1996. 105,860 bottles produced. Drink now-2035. - Neal Martin

This generous red is deeply colored and lively with plum prune tobacco and mineral flavors supported by well-integrated tannins. Balanced and may still improve. Drink now through 2009. 8750 cases made. –TM
