Drank this for my 28th birthday. Spicy with hints of currant. From my private collection. 1996 vintage.

Lots of life left in this old timer. Quite nice.

The 96 is still solid. Blackberries, blueberries, dark cherries, plum, over ripe strawberries, saddlewood, stone and forest floor, finish. Enjoy with a Lamb shank.

One of the most amazing noses I've ever experienced. Wet leaves, forest floor. Once it opened up, turned to wet bark. Fairly dry, ironically. Bold but reserved. This is a wine full of contradictory character. Unfortunately, the nose was a bit of a tease. The wine never fully opened up to its olfactory promise.

Smooth and subtle. Leather tar and black fruit. Medium finish.

Remarkably pleasant and still fruity for such an old wine. At approx 30 bucks for an 18 year old wine drinking this well that has to be a bargain

3 of 4 bottles wonderful (although a little inconsistent). last of the 4 was oxidized and undrinkable.
