Tasted a couple of times in 2010, this is a real beauty and only just starting to show any signs of maturity. Still deep in colour, quite rich and packed with sweet plummy fruit this not only has legs on it for another decade but is undoubtedly the best of the 1985 vintage. L&S (Oct 2010)

Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try. Rating: 93 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator(Sep 2011)
Meaty, raspberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, fresh blueberry – a wonderful combo. Tobacco, sausagemeat, smoke, leather, smooth tannins and fabulous vivacity. 2010-2025 Rating: 18 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Sep 2011)
First bottle: Much less deeply coloured than the Graham’s and also a little floral but more geranium than violet. Red-cherry fruit, lifted. Tannins are more silky and overall more elegant than the Graham’s but less richness. Second bottle is darker and denser. And more pure fruit. Tannins are firmer, much more upright and a much better framework. 2005-2025 Rating: 17.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com(Sep 2011)
