Holding up like a champ - velvety smooth, with cigar tobacco and stewed blackberry compote. A treat.

1989 Vintage: great color. Still showing an enormous amount of fruit. Great complexity. Will drink well for at least another 10 years.

1989. Excellent. Light bodied for cab. Exceptionally smooth and got smoother as breathed.

Happy to be drinking it. I got a signed magnum when I finished graduate school, which we then drank at my wedding. This old friend is still lively and has things to say
