(1982 Vintage) This has always been one of the wines of the vintage. Harmonious and beautifully structured. Brilliant ruby color, with a hint of garnet. A bounty of cherry, tobacco and cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and tannic, with velvety texture and medium finish.
DecanterRating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Distinct browning; slightly oxidised nose, coffee; distinct oxidation on palate, faded and could never have been that good; medium length.
