(12-1990) Ruby highlights. Good intensity. Very lively. Clean. Average intensity. Fruity and a little closed. Intense and fine. Fresh and fruity (blackberry, blackcurrant). Lightly wooded. Clean attack and fairly ample. The development is well balanced on a well sustained and fruity structure that evolves rather tastily on a woody and spicy tannin (pepper). Good finish. A complete 1987 and rather fine.
