  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    Oily, clove-scented oak and flowers dominate the nose. Juicy and bright, but with a seductive billowy texture. Compelling inner-mouth flavors of ginger, coconut and caraway seed (serve with a Thai curry?). Solid acidity frames and extends the fruit through a long, oak-spicy finish. A very good showing.

    Issue: July/August 1998
  • Rating: 91

    The 1989 exhibits aromas of honeyed pineapple/tropical fruit and toasty new oak, as well as an exotic, flashy perfume that is not as pronounced in either the 1990 or 1988. The 1989 exhibits less botrytis than the other two vintages. The wine possesses an opulent, full-bodied, exotic, lavishly rich personality, moderate sweetness, and huge quantity of extract, glycerin, and alcohol in its finish. The wine is also extremely young and unevolved. Last tasted 3/96
