Still so fresh and youthful. Iodine, pencil lead, rich fruit and fine tannins.

One of those "wish I'd bought more at the time" wines. 95 vintage. Drinking well. Think it was $14.99 when purchased.

2008 La Garde is classic with notes of tobacco, red currant flavors, bright acidity, and good body with elegant linear shape.
