Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, August 2000
Big and ripe. Dark ruby-garnet color. Very ripe berry chocolate and plum aromas. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins and a very ripe fruit finish. Tight muscular and concentrated. Needs time.--1990 Bordeaux... Big and ripe. Dark ruby-garnet color. Very ripe berry chocolate and plum aromas. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins and a very ripe fruit finish.

Here it showed well, even if I maintain a preference for the 1989. The nose is sultry, broody and takes time to unfurl, almost reluctantly offering up sage and black truffle infused black fruit, developing a subtle aniseed-like aroma with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but firm tannin. It is not as charming as the 1989, sweeter in the mouth, fleshier perhaps. That initial rush of black fruit is usurped by red fruit towards the finish, laced with bay leaf and a pinch of white pepper. While I would broach the 1989 now, I would be inclined to reach for the 1990 with another 3-4 years. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin
