Mrs. Pippin and I deserved a treat and we served up rack of lamb with this wine. I have had the 1990 Leoville las Cases many times (17 notes)and it has always been consistently excellent. This wine was decanted and poured within 20 minutes.
Cedar and tobacco nose, great structure, extremely long finish, complex, tannin that will allow this wine to grow and live for 20+ more years. With decanting this wine is very enjoyable yet I think it will not peak until 2010 +/-. 98 points.
