Whoever rated this wine in August of 88 was closer to what I'm feeling right now. An amazing steal of a purchase from a private collection at an insane price, and I'm glad I popped the cork now, though it could have kept aging at least a few years and still been magnificent. After decanting (lots of sediment) it had an essence of strawberry floating on the nose and on the palette. Still plenty of tannin, but after about 25min, the tannins became very soft and the wine had a perfect body of herbs, strawberries and cherries. The overall balance of this wine was tremendous.
