Impressive finesse for the vintage, with beautiful, fresh tobacco, cedar and coffee aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very silky with a fine, long finish. Drinkable now... Wine Spectator

I found this to be amazing. Dark blue and black (but very fresh) fruit aromas with wood oil and spirit (whiskey? Agave?) undertones. The wine seemed tight at first from the decanter but got more open and supple over 90 minutes. The wine was balanced and had texture on the palate. Probably near it's peak, and probably would've been benefitted from even more time in the decanter.

1983. Birth year wine. Delicious stuff. A touch of brett was beautifully integrated, and the secondary flavors were awesome.

Such a great vintage for LB at 38 yrs. A wine that I have had many times fully mature & should drink well another 5-10 yrs. Perfectly stored btls will have a deep dark color showing red & black fruits, currant, cedar, earth, leather, lead pencil, dried herbs, licorice, savory spices & tobacco notes. tobacco notes.
