On the gradual ride down. Nice secondary fruit. Cranberry, tomato, cedar. Just lovely.

Still ruby, not quite opaque. OK red currant nose, with sour cherries and saddle leather. Absent finish. This seems like it's either closed down, or it's missing fruit to match the strong acidity and tannic structure of the wine, or both. Even with 5 hrs of air, it didn't change much.

Dark cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, leather, dark earth, gravel. Soft and elegant but this 20 plus year old Bordeaux still needs another 10 plus years to hit its stride.

Decanted for a couple of hours but needed a bit more because by the last drop it was even more beautiful. Loved it.

Hitting its peak. Perfumed loveliness, #2 pencil shavings before getting a 780 on the writing section of the SAT's.

1995. Maybe not a good bottle. Nose is muted. Seems watered down. Just not what it should be. wb
