    Wine Spectator

    An alluring wine with gorgeous plum, blackberry and toasted oak characteristics, full, silky tannins and a long rich finish. Still very tight; should be a long ager. Drink after 1998. 2,150 cases made.

    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    It is closed, but the color is a dense, dark ruby with no amber or orange at the edge. The fruit is sweeter, and the wine is more muscular, richer, and broader in the mouth, without losing Ausone's tell-tale minerality, spice, and curranty fruit. There is a good inner-core of sweet fruit in this medium to full-bodied wine that needs another 15-20 years of cellaring. Can the 1990 possibly rival the 1983 or 1982? Perhaps ... but don't bet on it. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.
