JAR was kind enough to open this wine to share with NolanE, me and their wife/girlfriend.
What a stylish and impressive bottle of wine. The '88 has long been my favorite Tig, but this may well evolve into something just as special.
An intoxicating and floral nose, showing blackberries, raisin, spices and toast. The palate was rich with extreme freshness and crisp flavors of black cherries, hints of strawberry, dried herbal spices, followed with streaks of licorice and slightly burnt toast that balanced well against the sweet fruit.
The finish was both long (very) with still active tannins. An absolute joy to drink now, and may turn out to be one of the best Tig's ever with a couple more years of aging.
Well done, and thanks again JAR for sharing.
