Interestingly a bottle of 1990 Lafite Rothschild I pulled from my cellar for a video blog on my web site was still buttoned down tight and even with extended decanting was not showing as much as I would have hoped. However a bottle tasted of all places in Seoul Korea in February was only a few points short of perfection. That amazing performance motivated me to pull another bottle out of my cellar and follow it over the course of two days. Sure enough by the second day the wine was roaring from the glass. The 1990 Lafite has turned out far better than my early assessment. While it still possesses some firmness and performs like a late adolescent in terms of its evolution it boasts gorgeous aromas of cedar tobacco leaf cassis and lead pencil shavings. The explosive aromas are followed by a fleshy full-bodied wine that should hit its peak in 5-8 years and last for 25-30 more. Release price:($1400.00/case)

Very serious fruit with juicy berry tobacco and cedar character. Slightly more body than the 1989 but they are very close in character. I would give this a little more time. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Best... Very serious fruit with juicy berry tobacco and cedar character. Slightly more body than the 1989 but they are very close in character.
