The precocious 1988 reveals a medium dark ruby color, a blackberry, plum-like nose, some grace and charm, as well as fine depth and harmony. It should continue to drink well for 10-12 years.

Fresh mushroom and berries on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with a slightly raised acidity, but a good dusty coffee and berry character underneath.
