Wine Critic Reviews:

Wonderful mint and black currant aromas that follow through to the palate. Full-bodied and velvety-textured, with lots of fruit and a long, long finish. Exceptional... Wine Spectator

Sokolin 1990 La Lagune Tasting Notes:

The vineyards of l'Arrosee carry over a century of history in their veins. Think of the amount of work that went into creating outstanding, top-notch wines during all those years. It's that level of dedication that pushes a winery towards a reputation as one of Bordeaux's most prestigious. Combine such talent with a year like 1990 and one of the most compelling terroirs out there, and you get a drink that could topple most competitors in any wine-related scenario you can concoct in your mind. On the nose, you're hit with a potent combination of truffles, black fruits, toasted oak, lush raspberries, and crushed mineral. This full-bodied beauty boasts an impressive concentration and depth of flavor, primarily in the sweeter notes. The drinking experience is layered and multi-dimensional, and the structure of the wine gives it enough longevity for another few years, at least. The finish is otherworldly, calling your tastebuds out on another adventure. Simply marvelous.

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!

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
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
