The 1996 may not be as profound as I had predicted from cask, but it is an exceptional wine. Dark ruby-colored, with a complex nose of dried herbs, Asian spices, and black cherry jam intermixed with cassis, it possesses outstanding purity, and considerable tannin in the finish. This classic, medium to full-bodied, traditionally made wine improves dramatically with airing, suggesting it will have a very long life. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2028. Robert Parker

Textbook Bordeaux! With 20yrs of age comes lots of secondary flavors: tobacco, olives, soil, and green pepper. A red current note still holds the wine to be pleasurable with velvet tannins.

Entering a nice drinking window with plenty of life ahead.

Decanted, slight sediment. Round and still fairly dark in color (less orange than expected) lighter fruit, vegetal and long finish.
