1990 wine and Port Gift Suggestions

Those who were luck to be born in 1990 are in for a treat. 1990 was a legendary year for Bordeaux, one of a great trio of vintages between 1988 and 1990. As with the other successful vintages the weather was kind with a long, hot, dry summer ripening the grapes. The conditions seemed to favour St Jullien, Pauillac and Pomerol but not Margaux The wines from this vintage are generally characterised by high tannin levels, low acidity and high alcohol levels due to the ripe grapes.

The 1990 port vintage was a solid one that produced abundant quantaties of good quality port. It was not declared, however it produced some attractive, full bodied single quinta and Colheita wines with plenty of appeal. A great example is the very good 1990 Palmer Port Colheitas are numerous and represent great value. these will last another 30 years in the bottle. Paul Symington writes "The Douro 1990 Vintage can be summed up in just four words – production, enormous – quality, excellent. The 1990 Vintage has probably favoured not so much the very early starting quintas, but those whose grapes were picked from the third week of September onwards; however, overall quality promises to be good to excellent." 29 October 1990.
