Lot #278. Château Rayas Côtes du Rhône Château de Fonsalette Réservé Cuvée Syrah 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
"The opaque black-colored 1990 Cuvée Syrah offers an extraordinary perfume of hickory wood, chocolate, cassis, and black fruits, staggering richness, astonishing opulence, plenty of alcohol, and gobs of tannin. I suspect this massive wine will need at least 10 years of cellaring to reach its zenith. A dazzling effort, this wine does require discipline, as it must be cellared, unless it is consumed by masochists." Wine Advocate #103, Feb 1996
Notes: Lightly damp stained, very lightly mold stained, nicked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
