Wine Critic Reviews:

Shows plenty of mint, currant and mineral character on the nose. Full-bodied, with big and soft tannins. Plenty of mushroom, berry and fruity character. Opulent and beautiful...

Sokolin 1988 Leoville Barton Tasting Notes:

Compared to the bottles from 1989 and 1990, this Latour comes with a bit more noticeable herbal undertone. You could even say there's a little of eucalyptus on the palate, but these minty notes are exactly what makes this great vintage so unique.

So beautifully dark, it refuses to open up and reveal its secrets before you pour yourself a glass. Then this wonderful Cabernet and Merlot blend really starts showing its true colors. It's a classic Latour, the aristocracy's favorite, with its full body and beautiful structure. Fine tannins make it smoothly slide down your throat while caressing your taste buds with delightful black fruit and cassis flavors, along with some nutty background. Drinkable in the years to come, this bottle is something you'd regret missing out. Make sure you let it air for a little while and let it fully develop to your complete satisfaction.
