1990 Chateau Haut-Marbuzet = earth + tobacco + Tapatio!


Chateau Haut-Marbuzet 1990, Saint-Estèphe
Vineyard:  50% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc

A not so traditional wine coming from Saint Estèphe with large amounts of Merlot and loads of new oak.  The wine was drinking complete despite many reviews I read that said the wine is far past it's peak.  Still very dark red/ruby in colour, and a wild spicy note that reminded me of Mexico.  I can't really say if I like or dislike this wine but It's definitely unique. 
To put it into an equation:  earth + tobacco + Tapatio = 1990 Haut-Marbuzet!
