Vintage Tastings

BY JOHN KAPON

JK'S NOTE OF THE DAY

We ended with the 1990 Lafite, the forgotten First Growth of the vintage (we're not even going to count Mouton). The nose was mild, very shy besides touches of peanut, cedar, cassis, pencil and marijuana. There was ripeness and richness on the palate, length to the finish and great breed. Clive loved this wine, giving it 19 ½ , saying that the wine was backwards without being closed or adolescent, with marvelous balance-- this is what First Growths are all about (95)
