I know everybody loves this. But I don't. Too acidic and underripe phenolically. — 22 days ago
Tannins are tight on opening and in need of decant. Shows some nice reddish berry fruit and not much in the way of age. I like the fleshiness of the extraction here, can really bite into. Super high acid so much so as to be off putting to me, even though we drank most of the bottle. I guess '88 was a pretty lean year. After an hour the fruit in the glass dries a bit from age. Don't see the structure here resolving before oxidation sets into the fruit, however, the wine should go for quite a while longer, just depends on where you want the fruit. Overall disappointed here but a fan of this extracted old school style built to last (better suited though for certain years it seems).
