    Dark-colored, sporting loads of minty, berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with plenty of velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Built for aging.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal.

    The 1989 Meyney is 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.

    Auction bottle, held 2 years. Cork and color were great. Bretty nose blew off and a solid, firm leather and plum wine emerged. Held form for 3 hours, improving as it went. Rustic style, chewy and still holding tannin in reserve. 1989!

    Classic Bordeaux style. Moderate fruit , well balanced, soft tannins.SOlid but not spectacular considering the 1989 pedigree vintage.

    Poured out of magnum. Still dark at the core with some bricking at the rim. An enticing nose of pine sap intermixed with dark berry fruit. A nice perfume with hints of forest floor. Medium bodied, surprising amounts of residual sugar, the acidity makes the mouth water slightly with moderate tannin in the background. Delicate yet powerful in the mouth, very enjoyable mature bordeaux that's drinking nicely now. Slightly short on the finish.

    Very traditional old-fashioned austere St-Estephe; I doubt it will improve much
