Beauty. Dark ruby color, with aromas of dried plums, berries and chocolate, hints of spices. Full-bodied and very smooth, with fine tannins and a long aftertaste of chocolate and berry.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. 3,900 cases made.

The 1990 is another in-your-face, ostentatious, super delicious wine. This rich, oaky, smoky, alcoholic, lusciously rich, hedonistic wine makes for a wonderful drink. The wine is now revealing far more weight and tannin than it did from barrel. Drink this voluptuous, opulently textured, decadently smooth and ripe Pomerol over the next 8-12 years.
