Winemaker's Notes

Luscious black currant flavored Cabernet fruit makes Mouton beguilingly easy to drink. Rich Complex flavors, powerful ripe tannins and an extremely long finish are all hallmarks of this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red with a pale rim. Knockout nose of aromatic herbs, strawberry, sweet spices and acacia flower; yet another wine strongly marked by its cabernet franc presence. Fresh and vibrant, this absolutely dances on the palate with strawberry, sour red cherry and raspberry flavors complicated by gunflint and herbs. High acidity provides great clarity and cut to the long, floral, smoothly tannic finish. This has improved considerably with bottle age. Harvested from September 18 through October 3, this Mouton offers amazing balance and fragrance. In 1990 Mouton was still using a heavy toast for its barriques, which resulted in a smoky quality in the wines that was considered by many to be just as typical of Mouton as its opulence."

I bought a case of this wine as a future and finally opened a bottle a few weeks ago...man, is this a big , powerful wine...I decanted it and let it air for 45 minutes yet it was still hard and tannic...it has tons of berry flavors and a great nose - like a cedar box - I could just sit and smell it for an hour...but it needs another 10 years of aging, at least...hope I can wait that long
