Leathery on the nose with ample oak driven notes of nuts, cocoa, vanilla and spice. With air this gains a fine tone of thyme and green olive nuances before turning very floral. Elegant and refined in the mouth with a touch of vanilla up front that leads to smooth, sweet black cassis fruit ont he mid-palate. There is a nice leather and mineral tone that leads to the long finish but his lacks some cut and seems just a bit clunky. 93pts

Just how I remember it.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best afte... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1989 Angelus 750ml
