In a lineup of old Cabernet, that to be honest simply amazed me and exceeded all expectations, this 1990 Merlot might have been the single best showing. Absolutely pristine, showing way younger than its 29 years. This is full of silky, polished deep red fruit, plum, redcurrant, fruitcake, earth spices, and sweet tobacco. Lovely soft textures, plenty of fruit and vitality. Just simply delicious. Up there with some top Right Bank Bordeaux bottlings.
