Still showing a youthful feel at age 20. Somewhat austere in the mouth, firm and structured, especially when tasted next to a jammy '89 Montrose. Restrained currant and cedar fragrance, flavorful but a bit dry in the mouth and finish. Excellent balance and classy feel, but not in a generous style. - HK&GK 2010-01-04
