ITEM 8315418 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility
Medium-ruby color, with ripe plum, cigar tobacco and smoke aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Still closed, almost clumsy. Give it time.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005.
...Lovely balance and spread of mellow aromas. Tannins fully molten. Quite delicate for a 1990. Quite fresh enough on the finish. Subtle with a hint of tarmacadam. Lots of pleasure. Neat.
Fine nose of mint, eucalyptus and blackcurrants. No depth but classic attributes of oak, blackcurrant and spice.
