Very dark crimson. - still! Rich. Chocolatey. Velvety. Not unlike a bordeaux 1990. Very sweet start and then very slightly dry tannins on the finish. Not as succulent as the 1991. Dry and dusty on the finish. As though the grapes suffered quite a bit of drought. But good stuff.

This wine is just beginning to drink spectacularly well. The rustic, big, thick 1990 is Californian in its orientation. It is loaded with flavor, but the tannin is coarser when compared to the seamlessness of the 1991's.

Aromatically complex, with herb, currant and olive scents revealing depth, richness, concentration and complexity, whereas the flavors offer finesse and dimension.--California Cabernet retrospective. 17,000 cases made.

Mature, but still alive. Truffles. Mt. tam cheese. Strong secondary smells. Balanced, elegant, long. Old but beautiful.

Side by side with the 1989 Lynch Bages. Several people called the Lynch as the Californian. Both wines heading towards the sunset but doing so in style. Entirely secondary flavors at this point, but great tanin/acid backbone remains on both. A lot of fun to see them going strong. Sadly the last bottle of the Mondavi...
