Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1988

$269

Complex aromas of dark chocolate, currant and cigar box. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a mouthpuckering finish. Still very concentrated and chewy. Finishes with loads of ripe fruits, tobacco and cedar. Big and juicy wine... Wine Spectator

On tertiary notes; smells like a walk in the woods during fall. Not much fruit left on this bottle.

Classic lunch bags and just a stellar treat in a crowded sea of Napa cab. My fave 5th growth by a long shot but Pontet Canet and Grand Puy Lacoste aren't far behind. The Lynch seems to shine for me regardless of vintage.

Powerful and laser focused, great acidity and freshness combined with mature complexity flavors of warm, cooked red and black fruits. Strong earthy and savory undertone - slightly damp. Showing well for the vintage!
