Slightly overdone but seriously good. Dark ruby color. Impressive aromas of dark chocolate, currants and mint. Full-bodied, with big yet polished tannins and a long, mouthpuckering finish. Very young indeed.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2002. 10,000 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000.

Smart money will go after the 1989 and 1990. The 1990 is nearly black-colored, with a reticent, spicy, licorice, mineral, and cassis-scented nose. In the mouth, there is great extraction, rich, full-bodied, chewy texture, and a splendidly long, moderately tannic finish. Bravo! Anticipated maturity: 1996-2010. Wine Advocate.February, 1993
