Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

32 years and going strong. Chanterelle and porcini with earth notes and crushed cherries and baked plum. Palate of dried blackberries and alluvial strolls, black currant and smoke. Cedar-cinnamon-tobacco triumvirate. Gloriously strong and hearty.

Louis Latour

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 1990

Another seamless wine from a #magnum. This was the heyday of #LouisLatour whites and my favorite white #Burgundy vineyard went it's on. No doubt--this one was spot on--FORMIDABLE!!! #1990 #grandcru #cortoncharlemagne — 9 years ago

Vine Hill Road Vineyard Chardonnay 1990

Perfectly aged, this California chardonnay from
Kistler was simply stunning! Notes of dried pineapple, lemon curd, and vanilla bean on the nose, with the complexity of preserved lemons, butterscotch, and toasted almonds on the finish. A golden Valentine's day treat!

Dr. Loosen

Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese trocken Mosel Riesling 1990

Erni #Loosen's first foray into #dry #Riesling came shortly after he took over the estate in 1987, and it is a lovely bottle that is nicely balanced with just enough residual sugar to avoid any austerity. It was the perfect food wine! #1990 #Spätlese — 9 years ago

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 1990

One of most sensational #Rhône wines we've ever encountered--with all the grace and finesse of a great Burgundy it dazzled us all last Sunday at @ZuniCafe! #1990 #ChateauRayas #Reserve — 8 years ago

Henri Bonneau

Cuvée Spéciale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1990

Unlike anything I have ever tried, would never guess CdP but it indeed was and carried itself like a 10 year old, not a 24 year old wine. Made by the #legendary Henri Bonneau, arguably the most revered CdP producer/farmer after Rayas. A deep purple red color hinted that this was going to be interesting and not an old barny wine. The nose showed more mature notes but did not so much dominate over the youthful aspects. The nose showed aromas of dried and crushed berry fruits, earth, leather, and subtle spice notes. The palate took it up a few notches in intensity with youthful vibrancy, layers upon layers of flavor, full bodied, silky and ripe tannins, and a long and lingering finish. #chateauneuf #1990 #henribonneau — 10 years ago
