Wonderfully glowing crimson. Almost marine sort of mineral note ? real zestiness! Lightness of touch. Particularly vivacious on the nose. Very subtle and layered with lovely fullness without being at all sweet or alcoholic. Still quite dusty tannins on the finish. Just a little more subtle than the 1988. Big crop and it rained so no-one expected this to be this good. But Tony Soter decided to wait and let the rain go through and wait ? so this was picked later than most. (LM)

Less opulent than usual, but still smooth and polished. A pretty wine, with generous currant, black cherry and spice aromas and flavors, a supple texture and well-submerged tannins. Remains fruity and lively on the finish. Tempting now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,000 cases made.
