Good deep red, with some amber at the rim. High-toned aromas of plum, game, leather, chocolate and mint. Supple and sweet, with a plump middle but only moderate depth of flavor. Slightly astringent on the finish, which offers good but not outstanding length. One of the better efforts from this weak vintage. Ready to drink.

Ruby and slightly skinny on the nose. Lots of minerality. Quite marked acidity. In a lighter, fresher register than some vintages. Jim Laube of the Wine Spectator would call it unripe. It has a dry but very fine finish.

Starts out with earthy, gamy, leathery flavors, then turns supple and polished, with complex anise, currant, berry, mushroom and cedar notes. Shows more sweet-tasting fruit and balance than most '88s

I very good Cab that has aged extremely well. After decanting it opened up and was very nice.
