...It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux...Drink now-2040. Robert Parker

It's got that mature Margaux thing: briny, ocean, smoky, dried kelp nuance. Marred only by the bretty finish.

Tasted with awe and much contemplation, the 1990 Margaux was one of the crowning jewels at my last tasting in Carmel, a parting gift opened the evening before my move to Portland. Garnet-robed with no bricking, this bottle was fresh and vibrant with pronounced aromas of forest floor, leather, earth, plums, black cherries, sandalwood, roses and dried spearmint. On the palate, ethereal lightness, with fine-boned tannins and infinitely evolving complexity. Velvety from start to finish, save for a dash of minerality at the close, rather like throwing oneself into a an impossibly soft, luxurious feather bed.

You know, it's fun to drink bottles like this. Thank you Greg Gregory for sharing. Drinking it in downtown Bordeaux adds to the fun. Very classic, perhaps a bit quiet and closed tonight. While our charming waitress Pauline felt its day has passed, I felt there's a long and regal life ahead. More red than black, spicy and floral. Absolutely charming in a rustic, classical way. #bordeauxinbordeaux

This quartet, collectively DRC La Tâche, Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant all from the 1999 vintage, along with a 1990 Margaux were opened to celebrate my move from Carmel to Portland. These wines, all once-in-a-lifetime bottles, the stuff of fantasy, debate and obsession are perhaps the jewel in the crown of my year in Monterey. Yesterday afternoon, I arrived in Portland, tired in from the drive, with new story assignments and challenges awaiting me. The individual notes for these wines will be forthcoming.

If this's wine doesn't make you happy then you should be committed. Beautiful spicey complex nose with a soft palate that just glides along for days. #winning #holysmokes #chateaumargaux #cabernet #toolegittospit

Delicious of course, but a 100 point wine?? Meh! Too dark, too much tobacco and smoke
