The dark, opaque, ruby/purple color of the 1989 suggests a serious level of extract and intensity. The bouquet remains tight, but with swirling, delivers aromas of tar, spices, coffee, and blackcurrants. In the mouth, the wine is packed with fruit, has high levels of glycerin, outstanding concentration, and plenty of tannin in the finish. While the acidity is low, the tannins are high. My guess is that this rustic, old-styled wine needs another 8-10 years of cellaring. (RP)
