Perfectly stored btl of La Mission that is one of my favorite drinking vintages. This has been fully mature for more than 10 years & has not lost a step showing the classic La Mish character. An underrated vintage that has never disappointed.

Tonight I thought I would open this LMHB as the 2019 was released on futures yesterday. It may be a better wine but you are going to have to wait a long time to find out. The 66 is a wine where I have opened more than 6 cases in the last 5 yrs & consider it one of the great vintages for current drinking showing black fruits, cassis, saddle leather, smoke, tar, graphite, licorice, soy, tobacco & violets. This has been fully mature for 10 yrs & perfectly stored btls will continue to drink well for many years. One of the wines that keeps me searching & drinking old Bordeaux!

The 66 LMHB is a rock star, a wine that I have had many times & will reward well stored btls. This was fully mature showing notes of black fruits, cassis, cedar, leather, soy, black olive, smoke, tar & cigar box.

Another good btl of 66 that has red & black fruits, tar, cedar, leather, forest floor & cigar ash. Fresh btls will continue to drink well.

Beautiful drinking vintage for La Mission that is still very fresh at 53 yrs showing the classic LMHB personality.

Never disappoints! The 66 is hitting on all cylinders showing no signs of slowing down with perfumed aromatics of black & red fruits, cassis, cedar, leather, smoke, cigar box, soy , black olive, licorice & rose petal.
