It is not as concentrated as the 1991 but at this level who cares?

Not unlike the previous wine in structure, but much more classic in its delivery of ripe cherry fruit tinged with notes of cola, caramel and an elusive hint of dried flowers that is the patina of successful bottle aging, this one is maturing now and will peak in the next few years. It gets it points for current drinkability.
