"The 1987 is a beautiful wine that is pretty and holding onto its fruit nicely, with a dark, nearly opaque garnet color. This wine, with a production of just under 2,800 cases, was a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc. Tony Soter was still the winemaker, and during the period 1983-1990 the wines were made at Robert Pepi. This wine shows the texture and lushness for which the vintage is known. A deep color offers up notes of charcoal dust, earth, blackcurrants, cedar, a touch of rose petal and licorice. It is round, generous and probably the most fruit-driven of the older vintages in this vertical. It also seems to have reached full maturity, where it certainly can hold, when well-kept, for up to a decade." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Aug 30, 2016)
