Twenty-five years on tasting.
Maturing ruby. More generosity now, not as deeply-set in its tannins. Still torque-y for an ’89, where so many wines color outside the lines. The fruit is distinguished if not flamboyant: raspberries and cherry-tobacco with a lead-pencil char. Not especially long but lattice-y in its incisive, graphitic detail. A St.-Julien with poise, character and a future. Now – 2020+.
