94 Points

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - Bordeaux matters, along with Burgundy and Champagne and Port and ... (Ripple Restaurant in Washington D.C.): Compared to the 1989, this seems a bit superficial albeit the mid palate was more evidently rich and full bodied. But it lacked the backbone of the 1989 - and likely the ability to age longer. Perhaps the bottle was a touch faulty, as the nose seemed a touch vegetal - I initially got a note of green. But that blew off, taking into account the entire flavor profile. In the end, the wine was very pleasing: rich and savory to be sure. Comparing and contrasting with the 1989 kept bringing the same results however. While the 90 is on one level richer, it is on another level less compelling.
