Cos d'Estournel 1990
Not as concentrated as the 1982, or as most of the vintages made since 2001, the 1990 Cos has reached full maturity. It exhibits sweet berry fruit intermixed with spice box, herbs, and spring flowers. Expansive, round, and sensual, with wonderful purity as well as lushness, this irresistible wine can be enjoyed over the next 6-10 years

The 1990 will charm tasters with its flashy display of opulent Merlot mixed with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon.This super-concentrated wine possesses a roasted herb, sweet, jammy, black fruit-scented nose. Pure and full bodied,open,flattering and impossible to resist,this wine conceals more tannin than it is presently revealing. It will continue to mature for 15-20 years.
