Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. – JS

My notes on the 1989 and 1990 wines have been consistent over the last three years. The 1989 continues to lose ground although it is obviously an outstanding wine while the 1990 continues to escalate in quality. The 1989 tasted California-like in its ripe sweet black-cherry fruit nicely-integrated toasty new oak and clean pure winemaking style. A tighter more compact finish is the result of elevated tannin but this is an outstanding rich medium-weight Las Cases that tastes less well-endowed than I originally predicted. It is built more along the lines of the classy elegant 1985 than the blockbuster 1982 and 1986. The wine is still youthful with no amber at the edge of its healthy deep ruby/purple color. It will improve for another 8-12 years and then plateau offering very fine drinking over the subsequent two decades.</P>
