    Northern Rhone Tasting: Guigal 1990 Hermitage, Episode #722, 8/18/2009, (See more on Wine Library TV...) 91+ points

    (Guigal Hermitage) COLOR-dark with a brown/copper edge; NOSE-subtle greenness; a very intriguing horseradish component that I really like; dark cherries; a gamey/steak-like component; PALATE-very interesting; heavy component of basil, cilantro & bell peppers; then it gets quite peppery; then it opens up to a tremendous 3rd quarter; right after the mid-palate, the wine gets bigger; there's a lot fruit (sour cherry); I love the white pepper; I get a lime flower component on the solid finish; showing tremendously for a 20 year old wine; packs a beautiful punch; has great polish which is spectacular; I really like where this wine is going; should last a good 3-4 years; great food wine; GV-91+
