Jammy and spicy on the nose with rich blackberry pie filling tones backed up with powerful notes of leather and beef. This gains significant complexity in the glass going through a full register of earthy tones stretching from milk chocolate through tea, tobacco and anise with even a nuanced truffle note. Smooth, rich and suave in the mouth. This offers a rather precise feel with youthful tannins compensating for the lowish acidity Leathery and black with spice tones up front then a curious stretch of dilution across the mid-palate before finishing with a great, mineral tinged back end that offers more precise black fruits. The finish is a bit short and disappointing as well but this continued to improve in the glass offer the promise of continued positive development. 2008-2018 91pts

Garnet in the glass. Nose of mushrooms, sarsparilla, game, earth and dried leaves. Flavors of cola, mushroom and dried herbs. Also, truffle, dried strawberry, blueberry, cranberry and pomegranate notes with hints of raspberry, blackberry and pepper. Still nice and has interesting layers of complex aged fruit flavors. 91 pts. 4/21/12

The 1988 is firmly structured and elegant, with sweet, sweaty horse/old leather notes that may or may not be brett. Medium-bodied, earthy, firm, and vigorous, my instincts suggest it has reached full maturity, but I suspect it will always remain a fi... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
