Sokolin 1990 Carruades De Lafite Tasting Notes:

Some people consider gold a treasure. For a wine enthusiast like you, the 1990 Carruades de Lafite will be even more valuable than a treasure chest. The real value of a wine bottle isn't only in that sweet drink inside, the wonderfully scented drink of a refined texture that caresses your palate as you enjoy sip after sip. It's also in the moments we share with others over a bottle of wine - the moments of laughter, joy, and honesty. They don't say "in vino veritas" for nothing.

This Pauillac has begun to close down - it's slowly going towards the end of its peak. This means you should wait no longer and get your own bottle today. Don't miss an opportunity to sample this fantastic Bordeaux blend of spectacular complexity and gorgeously concentrated flavors.



Its deep color looks so powerful and mysterious you'll immediately wish to uncork the bottle and get to know this beauty a bit better. When you do so, the complex aromatics will jump right out and perform a little dance around your nostrils, to entice your senses with the cassis, blackberry, cherry, and currant scents with dashes of tobacco and herbal tones in the background. So many layers will make you feel lost in this delicious swirl. The palate feels fresh despite the age of this Lafite, with beautifully integrated tannins and a long, persistent finish with gorgeous fruity and vanilla flavors breaking through in the end.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
