(from a .7 ha parcel that was partially replanted in 1985 and the remainder in 1989). This is the first wine to display any appreciable wood influence and in this case it’s not subtle though it stops short of dominating the markedly spicy red cherry and floral-suffused nose. Once again there is very good intensity to the bigger, richer and more evidently mineraldriven broad-shouldered flavors that possess good muscle, power and finishing drive on the youthfully austere finish. A competent if not truly distinguished example. (91-93)/2032+
