Wine SpectatorSuper wine that delivers great concentration. Terroir bursts through in this wine, as it tastes of soil and mineral, blackberry and concentrated fruit. Clean, classy and full-bodied,this '88 beat out the '86 and '85 in a blindflight. Drink now through 2010.
Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateThe 1988 is a legitimate superstar of the vintage. Very deeply colored (even more opaque than the 1989), with a powerful, formidable mouth feel, this wine represents the essence of old vines and low yields (under 20 hectoliters per hectare).
