"Still ruby at the core. A wonderfully complex nose that evidences a much more pronounced secondary aromatic profile laced liberally with plenty of sous bois and a potent combination of leather, ripe earth and spice. The full-bodied flavors are concentrated, sappy and mouth coating with superb richness and almost none of the drying tannins that are so typical of many '83s. To be sure, this is still moderately structured but it's not hard, just firm though there is a touch of acidity that is just now beginning to poke through on the finish. In short, there is more material here than the '84 possesses but it's not as well balanced and harmonious." (92 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #17, Jan. 2005)
