"Beginning to show a few cracks around the edges, this once outstanding wine still has a very complex nose of roasted meats, cigar smoke, asphalt, licorice, and black, juicy cherries and currants. The wine’s succulence and fat, once one of its hallmarks, are beginning to dry out ever so slightly. The tannins and acids seems a bit more noticeable in the finish than I remember during its first 10-15 years of life. I would suspect this wine is still at its peak of perfection from magnum or bigger formats, but from regular bottle, even from my very cold cellar, this wine is starting to show some of the tell-tale signs of wear and tear. Anticipated maturity: Now-2008. Last tasted, 8/02." - Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition (Dec 31, 2002)
