85, The Wine Advocate

New owners, plus the hiring of renowned oenologist, Michel Rolland, have already resulted in higher quality. For example, the 1990 is a surprisingly strong effort from this perennial underachiever. The color is dark ruby and the nose offers attractive, seductive aromas of sweet red fruits, vanillin, and spices. In the mouth, there is a smooth, velvety texture, fine ripeness, succulent fruit, attractive glycerin, and a heady, lush finish. This sexy, easy-to-drink Graves should provide delicious drinking for another 5-7 years.
