"A fully mature Cos at its prime; delicious to drink with seamless texture and velvety tannins. Several different bottles opened in one evening prove this is a solid Cos that is the epitome of its 'old style' when subtlety was prized more than power."
* Jeannie Cho Lee, 2014*


"The 1985 from cask could have been a lighter version of the 1982 and 1953 vintages. Forward, with a fabulously scented bouquet of pain grille and concentrated red and black fruits (especially black cherries), it is rich, lush, long, and medium to full-bodied. Very fragrant, with gobs of sweet black fruits, minerals, and spice in both its flavors and aromatics, this is one of the most forward wines from Cos."
*Robert M. Parker, Jr.
