Wine Description

(1988 Vintage) Consistent notes except for cont'd softening of tannins with age; Med dark ruby w/amber edge; impressive nose; not too tannic; lovely Cabernet fruit; med.-full body; beautifully balanced, very ripe, almost sweet fruit; some of the leaness (esp. mid=palate) & hardness of the vintage but not austere, esp. for a Latour; long, complex, intense & elegant. Ready now but with plenty of life ahead.
