Still relatively deep ruby. Somewhat surprisingly, the '88 is displaying a bit more aromatic maturity than the '89 with a more deeply pitched nose than usual with notes of spice, earth, smoked game and a certain sauvage quality that is uncommon though it does complement the relatively big, robust and sleekly muscled flavors that offer excellent intensity on the firmly, but not aggressively, structured finish of moderate length, at least by the extraordinary standards of this wine. While still youthful, it is no longer a baby and I would suggest leaving it to mature for at least another 10 years first; it's going to need it. Like the '89, a solid but not spectacular showing.
