Blackberry cassis, dark cherries, herbaceous, olive, liqueur notes, sweet spice. The 85 is still there but fading. Tasted at Cafe Lavinal which is owned by Lynch Bages. The Chateau is right next store.

'85 Lunch Box and a stellar array of dishes at Torc. Minerals, red fruits, mushrooms and love. Big ups to Chef O'Toole and his team!

I've heard great things about this wine but I've never had a great bottle. Just something disjointed about it.

how to celebrate the reopening of the glorious #NYC icon that is #UnionSquareCafe (founded '85)? With a velvety, minty '85 #LynchBages, lamb shank, & bien sur, USC french fries

Such a beautifully balanced & expressive bottle, the '82 is quite similar in style right now, but there is a smooth/exotic complexity to this one that the '82 doesn't express in the same way.

This particular bottle was advanced in age, but still a fun wine to try.

1985. Tasting this was like sitting next to a WWII vet on a train...some respect for an old school gentleman...they don't make wines like this any more: herbal, pencil shavings, cigar, tea, lots of acid, grainy tannins, light body, refreshing...let's bring cab like this back!
