1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, Jean Leon


1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, Jean Leon
In the late nineties this was kind of a favourite, inexpensive and great tasting. How about now, twenty years later?
The nose is a bit shy, even with airing, and displaying notes of fresh stables, dried black curants and old leather. Soft. Fully mature but not overly so.
The taste is cool, mature and dry with notes of dried red and black currants, autumn leaves, gravel and tobacco. Good. Very much alive but a tad boring compared to my memory of it.
