If I had a nickel for every customer who asked for a decent bottle of Napa Cab for $50, I would be a rich man. Why settle for decent, when you can get a perfectly stored, mature claret from a great vintage like this 1989 Lilian Ladouys? I had fired up the grill and decanted this bottle about an hour ahead and was very impressed! This fine Bordeaux was worth the wait, and cut the rich dry aged ribeye that I grilled like a razor. The color of the wine is still so strong, the texture so rich, yet the wine finishes bright. The magic of Bordeaux is in this bottle- dark fruit, bright finish!
