As in most 1995s, the color remains a healthy dark plum/purple. One of the bigger wines of the vintage, the ripe, powerful Merlot component has buttressed the Cabernet elements, giving the wine plenty of body, tannin and La Mission's classic asphalt, cassis, blackberry, smoky barbecue, meaty notes intermixed with a hint of hot rocks...the wine is obviously high-class... this intense 1995 appears to be a top-class La Mission-Haut-Brion, not far off the mark established by the profound 1989 and superb 1990.

Piney resinous. Dark fruit with sweet tobacco and spice. Drinking young.

Was hitting on all cylinders... cassis, leather and earth.. smooth wine with plenty of years ahead of it... fruit was very present. Dark garnett color. Over time started to out shine the 98 soldera riserva

1995: The "Oh well, why not" consolation prize wine, opened to keep the conversation going. Classic La Mission nose, very supple and approachable on the palate. Vaporized a bit quickly on the finish, yet wrapped up the evening nicely with a little breeding.

Very nice wine, but very young. Big, rich, round and tannic. Id wait another decade to open this one

Deeply perfumed. Amazing purity of fruit. Restrained in a nice way but still excellent tannic and acid backbone. Just perfect with dry aged steaks.

A 50-50 blend of merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Not a whole lot on the nose but nice tastes of raspberries and a little smokiness. Sleek tannins.

Drank at Torc in Napa. A little tight upon opening but an hour in the decanter really woke this up. Still drinking very young and as good as it was I'm going to keep my hands off the rest for a few more years.
