Tawny and dark. Almost opaque. Notes of cola, smoked meat, earth and with air some sweet fruit emerges. Briary. Short finish. This showed well and held steady over 5 hours. Nice showing.

This is now one of the finest wine I have every drank. Everything about this wine is unbelievable. The tannins were silky smooth, the fruit still very discernible ( at this age) crazy we drank it blind and we got everything right except the age. It was dark red to purple so I guess 1996. Lol. Only 30 years off. Now if only every wine tasted liked this.

Boom! Profound, rich, power, grace. Pure definition of what great Bordeaux should be.
