Twenty-five years on tasting.
Bright, medium-ruby. At full-maturity now, glossy and concentrated like demi glacé with a fragrant demerara-sweetness. Cherry confit and spice. Satiny richness but not fat: fine acidity, energy and length. The finish is a finely-pulverised gravel. Like many of the ’89s the grip is good not great so think about finishing these up in the near-term. Now – 2019.
