Loads of character in this one. You can almost smell the soil. Very powerful and impressive, with masses of tannins and medium sweetness. It shows opulent aromas and flavors of wet earth, green tea and berry. A tough young wine that needs to age.
Heady and, funnily enough - porty(!) with great acidity and finesse. One of those claret-like vintages! Lovely! 18/20 points. Drink 2010 - 2025. (JR)
The 1991's impressive color and flashy nose of pepper, spice, earth, black truffles, and black fruits, suggest a developed, forward character. Medium to full-bodied, with significant tannin and moderate sweetness, this 1991, although impressive, was almost overwhelmed in a blind, peer group tasting by some of the more rich and concentrated examples. Already approachable, give the 1991 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 20-25. (RP)
