A very youthful deep garnet core with ruby rim. This has a much more precocious nose than the -83 with ripe blackberry, raspberry coulis, black olives and a certain minerality to it. Very fresh and well defined, the palate is full-bodied, certainly more structured and complex than the previous two declarations. Notes of black cherry, fig, raisin with a hint of savoury fruit towards the finish that has great length and refinement. Still in its youth, this has great potential and might be over-shadowed by the ensuing two vintages... Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Still youthful (even after 12 hours in the decanter), ripe, plummy fruit, big structure, firm yet moderately sweet, long finish, very fine Porto.
