"A backward, soft, inky/purple-colored wine, the 1985 Cuvee Syrah remains monolithic and unevolved. Tasted blind, it could easily be mistaken for a barrel sample from a recent vintage. It is still thick and juicy, with tremendous quantities of black fruits, particularly cassis, but there are no signs of evolution. Owners are advised to either drink it (if you like grapy, exuberant, uncomplicated, mouthfilling red wines), or give it another 2-6 years of cellaring and hope more complexity will emerge from this big, beefy wine." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Feb 22, 1996).
