    (1992 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Dark ruby, with lovely, creamy, ripe nose of blackcurrants and oak. Sweet oak and fruit on the palate with good balance. Classy!

    (2001 Vintage) "Very complex, with blackberries, flowers and minerals. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, sweet fruit aftertaste. Refined La Mission. Beautiful. Best after 2008. (JS)"
