    August 8, 2022 - drank 40 minutes after decanting. Nose was a little stewed and cooked. Kinda elegant, with a little hint of smoke. Nice on the palate and silky smooth. Probably past its prime, or at least this bottle was.

    July 30, 2022 - After the wonderful 1989, the ‘90 is a disappointment. Color is moderately dark ruby and for a few seconds there’s a splash of bright red fruit. Slightly unbalanced by excess tart acidity, which voild be refreshing if there was adequate density of fruit to buffer it, but there is not. So while seemingly youthful, the fruit is a little dull and unfocused.

    June 18, 2022 - Best wine of the summer so far, this beauty was in great shape with a perfect cork. Bouquet of flowers right on the open mixed with cedar, unsmoked cigar, sous bois. Palate was bursting with a wave of blue and red fruit, black tea, caramel. A fully mature Bordeaux in all the best ways, this was a fantastic experience and worth the hefty price tag.

    May 15, 2022 - This was a disappointment as it was clearly past its peak despite absolutely perfect provenance and storage.

    TN: Herbs, soy sauce but lots of substance. On the palate this shows fresh red fruit, herbs but again soy sauce, broth aromas. The structure is holding up well and without fault but that can’t save the wine.

    Decanting: Same picture right after opening and hours later (and after decanting the wine).
