Sokolin 1990 Grand Puy Lacoste Tasting Notes:

With a bottle of this size and a wine of this quality, you could keep a party going for hours upon hours. Let the purple ruby hue of the wine mesmerize you from the very first minutes of your experience, and brace for impact because this Grand Puy Lacoste will rock your world. On the nose, the wine presents a potent, enchanting aromatic cocktail – ripe plums, cigar box, crème de cassis, cedar, and black truffle. This expressive intensity is felt again on the palate, where the full breadth of the wine’s textural complexity and purity of flavor are displayed. As the lengthy, broad, generous finish rolls around, you are given a minute or so to try and resist the wine’s temptations, but who said you needed to? Give yourself to the wine, and let it play with all of your senses as a tsunami does with driftwood. Another masterful display out of Bordeaux.

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
