Super expressive. All the classic Bordeaux notes apply. In a savory place - baked apple - integrated tannins. Singing. Still has ageing life remaining too.

Pencil shavings. Drinking extremely well now for a 21 year old wine.

Fine tannins, nice structure, great finish, very ready to drink, generous and friendly compared to some other vintages from the 90's, great balance! I could have taken another bottle 😉

Leather, cherry and peppercorn. Beautifully structured. Another Kermit Lynch find. BYOB tonight at Sir & Star. Ordering the lamb tenderloin to go with. 1998 vintage.

A little past its prime...this Bordeaux has a nose of barnyard. Fruit flavors have melted away, now reduced to cinnamon & bell pepper. 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc & 3% Petit Verdot...12.5% A.b.V.
