Tour Saint Bonnet Medoc Cru Bourgeois, 1990

We're back to budget happy wines, now.I bought a case of the 1990 Tour Saint Bonnet on futures for $139 back in the early 1990s. The price has gone up since then but is still reasonable considering the quality of this very ageworthy Bordeaux.

Good color with minimal bricking for a 25-year-old wine. Cherries and red fruit rather than currants. Nothing green or herbal. Still youthful and lively with some uplift on the palate. A good Bordeaux from an outstanding vintage. I'm in no hurry to drink the rest of my stash.
