Big and rich with blueberries and restrained tannins. Great balance and power. At an apex now but will continue to develop a new apex.

Completely round and elegant. At its peak but not fading fast. Not showing any musty qualities. A problem that affected many wines produced from this estate between 1986-1990

En magnum. Initially a bit of tobacco and cigar box, actually a tad lighter in color than the 1982, medium-bodied, still showing some tannic structure, just a tad drying in the finish.
