Dried earthy, smoky goodness... Still some ripeness to the fruit, silky smooth

Like the '82 Gruaud, the nose isn't there. Palate is fantastic though. Textured, long, powerful. Dark fruit, pretty spice.

This '82 was one of my epiphany wines around 15 years ago, in the midst of all the Aussie Shiraz this highlight arose, it started me down this quite interesting journey. This bottle was stored impeccably, still has a great mid-palate intensity, but it's all dried out black fruit & dark flowers now. Dried black tea & cigar leaf.

Upstaged by the 1959 unfortunately, but still an incredible wine.

Still some fruit present but with a wicked delicious mineral character. #bordeaux #stjulien #cabernet

Tight. Needs lots of time. This '82 vintage is closed as a coffin. Inked, deep color, firm tannins and massive nose. Will outlive me for sure.

My contribution. Worst of the 82's, but much like the COS, there are worse things to put in your mouth.
