Winemaker's Notes:

A show-stopper and certainly the favorite of a recent tasting, the 1990 lives up to all the vintage's lofty expectations. Subtle, savory notes of shaved chocolate provide bass notea for bright, soprano trills of pink grapefruit and chalk on the aromatic, complex nose. Truly palate-staining; rich, layered and very complex. A full-bodied wine that still has years, if not decades, ahead of it.
