Description

    Chateauneuf du Pape 1989
    Reserve, Chateau Rayas
    1sos
    Bottle (2)


    "The 1989 Rayas is finally beginning to live up to its immense potential. The color is a dense ruby/purple. The aromatics, which have consistently been tight and reserved, are beginning to reveal some of the framboise and black cherry liqueur-like scents for which this hallowed estate is known. Extremely full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with lots of tannin, muscle, and extract, the colossal-sized, tightly-knit 1989 is bursting at its seams. It requires another 3-5 years of cellaring. This is a prodigious Rayas that is just beginning to strut its stuff." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #129, June 2000)

    "Intense, big and packed with fruit. A bit tough and drying on the slightly alcoholic and hot finish. Needs time." (86 pts. PM, Wine Spectator, Dec. 1999)
