Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 2003
A wine that continues to catch up to the 1990 (and probably has greater longevity) is the 1989. A dense-colored Rayas but not as thick-looking as the 1990 this dark ruby-colored wine exhibits plenty of roasted herb notes... A wine that continues to catch up to the 1990 (and probably has greater longevity) is the 1989. A dense-colored Rayas but not as thick-looking as the 1990 this dark ruby-colored wine exhibits plenty of roasted herb notes intermixed with scents of tobacco sweet creme de cassis and kirsch. Full-bodied highly-extracted powerful and tannic (resembling 1995 more than 1990) it is shedding its cloak of tannin and beginning to approach full maturity.
