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!
