Considerable amber is creeping in at the edge of this wine, which shows notes of cinnamon, earth, red fruits, dried herbs, and mushroomy, forest floor notes. The wine is medium-bodied, still somewhat tannic, and very complex aromatically. The wine is not showing signs of drying out, but this is hardly a hedonistic style wine for those looking for more fruit-driven efforts. .

Idiosyncratic and contradictory as usual. In 1984: certainly an intriguing bouquet and taste, 'singed', its richness tussling with its rawness. Most recently, my favourite 'dried leaves' simile --nose and taste. Quite good length. .

Color very advanced pulling brown. Nose, fruity, ripe. Wine nervous attack, and then stroking the middle is undone, and finally ends austere. A green button in the final aroma confirms that the grapes were not mature enough.
