Lot #147. La Lagune 1989

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 90 RP.
"I have always enjoyed the 1989 La Lagune. At first I thought it was marginally superior to the 1990, but they are essentially equivalent in quality, although the 1989 possesses less fat, and a more ruggedly tannic structure. The color is a healthy dark ruby, and the wine offers up a smoky, sweet vanillin, jammy berry-scented nose with aromas of weedy tobacco. The wine is medium-bodied, with excellent purity and richness, and gobs of red and black currant fruit nicely dosed with new oak. The wine's grip is more noticeable than in the 1990, and the finish more attenuated, but still impressively long." Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition Jan 1998
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, very lightly scuffed, lightly damp stained, lightly mold stained, lightly bin soiled, torn label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $95
