...This has always been such an impressive wine, but it has also always been a Cos that is determined to have a long life...It has a deep garnet core, broody and tight, touches of black olive, chimney soot, dusty bureau and scorched earth. Very well defined. The palate is full-bodied with a dense, robust structure, a firm tannic frame that will see this comfortable through 30+ years. Masculine, a clenched fist of a wine and yet there is undoubtedly great balance and focus with notes of blackberry and pain grille. Powerful and broad-shouldered on the finish, it opens wonderfully in the glass. Approaching maturity, you could pop this now but I'd prefer to wait another 2-3 years. Drink 2012-2030+. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

In its prime! Dark plum and currant with damp earth, wet tobacco and a touch of mint on the back of the palate. Long, smooth finish. Delicious!

This kid has the full package. Plush and fleshy, mocha and earthy, excellent on the palate and kind to the nose. This night it betters the it's stablemate, the very good 1989.
