(95+ pts for me at this point).
This just keeps getting better and better.

Impressive at 27 years. Still youthful and full of structure.

The nose on this beast was my favorite part. Still has plenty of life ahead of it. Quite a treat.

WOTN vs a blockbuster line-up at Cafe Baloud in West Palm Beach on 4/28. Loads of power and concentration but it's a standout for it's plush balance, sexy freshness and astounding vibrancy. This is a 27 year old wine but the fruit is still a centerpiece of this wine and it makes you take notice. Elegant tannic structure with warming fig, expresso and cassis flavors that fill your mouth with hedonistic pleasure. The second '90 Latour @Martin G Rivard pulled out that weekend.

Really shining right now, still quite intensely fruit driven, but all the right development & balance, classic Pauillac, has another 20-30 years in it.

Still a behemoth at 26 but lovely edges and round full tannins. Powerful velvet finish with just a touch of heat. Decant or hold. Still has 15-20 years left. More a hedonistic Napa Cab lovers treat right now but incredibly tasty stuffing.
