"Green olives and blackberry jam, with hints of vanilla and Indian spices. Some dark chocolate too. Complex nose. Very full-bodied, with dense, dark fruits and a licorice undertone, yet the huge tannin structure is polished and almost seamless. A massive and powerful wine, yet balanced and refined. Fantastic. Just a beautiful baby still. [1988/1998 Bordeaux blind retrospective, 2008.]" WineSpectator.com, 2009
Provenance: The Gloire Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,000
