One of the best buys I ever made was buying 1990 Latour for $35 each when Liquor Barn went out of business in the early nineties. As a result, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for this vintage. Despite my fond remembrances, every time I have tasted the '90 I have found it to be not nearly as good as the pundits say it is. A complex/herbal nose of sweet fruit, green pepper, espresso, smoky raisins, Milky way bars, and dust. Chimerical bouquet. Beautifully elegant on the palate with a lengthy fruit finish. Raisiny fruit flavors with herbal overtones.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
