SKU: LAFI1990

Very deep color. A complex bouquet with blackcurrant, blackberry, smoke, leather, and spicy aromas. There is just a hint of oak. The attack is direct and elegant, with lots of tight, refined tannins and ripe fruit. Silky texture, and a very long finish. This wine may be kept for many years.

Blend: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96 Points
Interestingly, a bottle of 1990 Lafite Rothschild I pulled from my cellar for a video blog on my web site was still buttoned down, tight, and even with extended decanting was not showing as much as I would have hoped. However, a bottle tasted, of all places, in Seoul, Korea in February, was only a few points short of perfection. That amazing performance motivated me to pull another bottle out of my cellar and follow it over the course of two days. Sure enough, by the second day the wine was roaring from the glass. The 1990 Lafite has turned out far better than my early assessment. While it still possesses some firmness, and performs like a late adolescent in terms of its evolution, it boasts gorgeous aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf, cassis, and lead pencil shavings. The explosive aromas are followed by a fleshy, full-bodied wine...
