Exactly what you'd expect from aged Bordeaux. Great time to enjoy. Good nose.

What's not to love? Impeccable balance of silky tannins, present acidity, and still noticeable cassis, blackberry fruit. Plenty of complex tertiary aromas, classic cigar box and spice, ready to drink but I'm betting on another 12-15years of drinking pleasure for this great wine. 1996 vintage.

Nice wine with dinner with Steve and Marylou. Very smooth. Was looking for just a little more depth of flavor. 1996 vintage.

A controversial wine. Those who think a good, aged, traditional Bordeaux is a medium-bodied wine that smells of green pepper, light cassis and pencil shavings with aromas of funky leather saddle (the kind that may have recently been used on an actual horse) and tobacco will be pleased. Those expecting something sweeter, bolder and longer will be disappointed. This comes off a little angular but also correct and pleasant, if all those things can be true of a wine.
