Popped and poured. Consumed over 90 minutes. Beautifully scented with cherries, raspberries, dried herbs, tar, and freshly bloomed magnolias on the nose. Flavors of tart cherries, black tea, and earth. I sort of expected this to come across more modern but this was actually rather charming! Tannin is well integrated. Good acid. Finish lasts for about 30 seconds. Drinking just fine right now but should hold well into the next decade.

Lots of finesse. Quintessential. Structured and traditional. Great now. Still has time.

1990. I expected it to blow my hair back a little more but still a solid wine.

Delicious. I have had the 04 and it was bone dry and full of oak. This was full of red fruit and flowers with soft tannins.
