(08-1993) This has consistently been a good, medium-weight, elegant wine with little evolution to its medium ruby color and solid, but unexciting bouquet of cassis, new oak, and licorice. There is adequate body, crisp acidity, and a new world style to it. I like the 1979 Cos, but after having drunk almost a case of it, I must admit it has never proven that exciting.
