90 points Robert Parker: "One of the finest examples of the 1982 vintage, this wine has been a reliable performer for over a decade. It is one of only two B.V. Private Reserves made during the decade of the eighties to merit an outstanding rating. The 1982 exhibits a saturated dark ruby color with only slight lightening at the edge. The nose offers copious quantities of sweet, jammy, red and black fruits intertwined with plenty of spicy, toasty new oak. Ripe, full-bodied, opulent, and fleshy, this sumptuously-styled Private Reserve is drinking well. It should continue to mature gracefully for 10-15 years." (06/95) From Michael Broadbent: "Colour like intense blackcurrant juice, very sweet nose, sweet on palate too, full-bodied, silky, leathery tannins, enfolding marvelous fruit."
