One of most sensational #Rhône wines we've ever encountered--with all the grace and finesse of a great Burgundy it dazzled us all last Sunday at @ZuniCafe! #1990 #ChateauRayas #Reserve

A slam dunk. Absolutely mind-boggling. Power, finesse, authority, transparency and all those things. It was also super clean!
