Wine Critic Reviews:

...The nose is immediately more impressive compared to the other 1991's at this tasting. Black cherry, earth and cooked herbs. Touch of sweet blueberry as well. Still quite backward with firm tannins, pencil-lead and smooth texture...

Sokolin 1991 Latour Tasting Notes:

There's nothing like a refreshing taste of Syrah on a hot summer evening. La Landonne is a creative, reputable winery from the Rhone Valley, and their wines will blow your socks off with ease. As you might expect from Rhone wines, this lovely Syrah exhibits seductive, feminine characteristics. On the nose, one encounters an intense, almost opulent aromatic cocktail, featuring notes of cracked pepper, earth, black cherries, smoke, and bacon, with a subtle, leathery undercurrent. These aromatics translate perfectly to the palate, where the wine's generous, rich fruit takes center stage, helped in no small way by the enthralling, compelling texture profile that caresses the entire inside of your mouth. The fruit is ripe, intense, and pure, and the finish lingers what seems like forever. If you have the budget for a wine of this stature, treat it with reverence and care. It's all about good timing, so make sure you make the most of such a stunner!

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Latour: The Chateau Latour earned a prestigious First Growth spot in the Bordeaux 1855 Classification, and its track record is jaw-dropping for even the most distinguished wine connoisseurs. The vineyards themselves are reminiscent of gorgeous and complex garden mazes from tales of fantasy, with a distribution of 76% Cabernet Sauvigno, 22% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This combination comes together perfectly when grounded with an earthy undertone and punctuated with succulent cherries, lush mint, bold spice or a delicate yet sharp tobacco flavor. These bottles are the ideal partner to a robust evening cigar, as the worries of your life fade into the smoke, and the orchestral perfume of flavors sings to you like a muse, inspiring you towards new triumphs and achievements.

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
