This has stood still.
Cigars, leather and dill on the nose and palate. Lovely texture, with an elevated finish. Drink or hold for 3 - 5 years longer.
Stop Press - wifey no likey 😮

What a treat. This wine is tasting spectacular right now. Dried herbal notes, cigar box, faint fruitcake notes, cedar, teakwood, cassis, plums, forest floor. Elegant and lean with a bright, red-fruit driven finish. #leovillebarton #1996 #bordeaux #stjulien
