Meyney St Estephe Red Blend 1989
The nose drew me in as it was so savory, yet sour/sweet at the same time. First, I encountered a bit of meaty broth, which quickly gave way to dark fruits, spice, and a bit of browned bread; it reminded me of a freshly baked blackberry tart with floral notes rounding it out. On the palate, it was a very pretty wine, medium bodied and juicy with sour cherry, and an herbal, almost medicinal note. The finish showed fresh berries and revealed lively tannin. The ’88 Meyney is still very much alive and going places.

...one of the finest Meyneys ever produced. The opaque black/ruby color a bouquet of minerals and damson plums the alcoholic massive flavors and the mouthcoating tannins all combine to create a sensory overload. The 1989 will prove uncommonly long-lived as well as profoundly flavored... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
