2004 dinner with Francois @ home, Farnden ave, Los Altos dense ruby color. fabulous nose of black fruit, leather, lead pencil with hint of spice. wonderful length but not as impressive as 1982. could be still few year too young when open. 2007 retail is >$1,100 !!! selling my 2nd bottle for DRC.

...Great vibrant nose of redcurrant, licorice, minerals and tobacco, along with a minty austerity. Thick and large-scaled, like an essence of Pauillac. Really explodes in the middle palate. Incredible unfolding peacock tail of a finish. A monumental,... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1990 Latour, Chateau 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

This is one of the more perplexing Latours to evaluate. It has plenty of sweetness as well as a gorgeous, rich fruitiness, but it lacks the firmness one finds in more recent great vintages such as 1996, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, and 2008. There is plenty of sweet, ripe currant fruitiness, abundant glycerin, and full body, but Im still waiting for that extra nuance of complexity to emerge. Its all there, but the wine still seems to be more monolithic than one would expect in a wine approaching 19 years of age. It is not the sure-fire winner I thought it was in its youth, but then again, I dont have any reason to doubt that more complexity will emerge. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035.
