Little disappointed and seems it was a little off due to bottle (handling).

Consistent notes. Full dark ruby color w/slight amber edge; full nose of mainly red fruit, smoke, haberdashery, and some celery seed and green olive; similar flavors; firm backbone with noticeable tannins that have softened and integrated; well-structured yet feminine; med.-bodied, lush and moderately complex; nice long finish; ready but will hold for many years. Lovely.

Dark color with a wisp of brick red at the edge. Traditional Bordeaux aromas with field flowers, wet earth and grass. Initial taste with velvet tannins, ripe berries and some dark fruit. An elegance that is smooth and traditional classic Bordeaux.

Wine Advocate # 183 Jun 2009 Robert Parker 97 Drink: 2009 - 2029 $227-$440 A remarkable vintage for Pichon Longueville Baron, 1990 is one of this estate's two or three finest wines made in the last 40 years. Still inky/blue/purple-tinged to the rim, it reveals an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal, incense, creme de cassis, blue and black fruits, and a hint of licorice as well as an impressively long finish. While drinkable, its evolution is extremely slow, and I would not be surprised to see it last another two decades or more. Release price: ($390.00/case)

decanted for 2 hours before drinking after initial tasting showed still a little tight. After decanting, a velvety mid palate and smooth long finish that lengthed with the second glass. dark dusty fruit and a leather smokey undertone.

Drank this with the '89 Angelus and '90 Leoville Barton. This was a huge wine that needed some time (15-20 minutes) to open up. Once it opened up, it was amazing.

Drank in a vertical of PB. Decanted for 2 hrs prior to serving. Much more jammy and fruit forward than the 89 served alongside it. Not as complex. Still quite tannic. A very good wine, but suffers from the shadow of the 89 and 00. ***1/2 / *****

Opaque color with a nose of cedar and raspberry. The wine is medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. The fruit is balanced with tannins showing, mocha, and mint flavors. This is a wow wine. Drink now if you like young Bordeaux or hold for 10 years.

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.
