    April 8, 2013 - La Commanderie de Bordeaux: 1988 Horizontal (Boneta Restaurant - Vancouver, BC): Quite subdued on the nose with really not much showing, but there is some rich dark dried fruits, black pepper, vitamin, and sweet dates aromas evident. Tons of black plum on the palate, along with rich dark dried fruits, black pepper, and floral white flowers. High acidity, with a medium length finish ending on a note of black plums. This was different...astringent, fruit stripped, candied and rich dried fruits almost resembling a CDP. There was surely something off with this bottle, not corked, but seems like it's seen some heat somewhere during its life. It wouldn't be fair to rate this. NR
