Had this about 2 years ago. The estate once belonged to the famous Lynch family, of Irish origin, was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934. His grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes restructured the estate in 1974. A blend of 73% Cab Sauv & 27% Merlot, deep Ruby (lost purple edges), pronounced berry fruit aromas with cacao and vanilla notes. On the palate blackberry and plum flavors with tobacco and espresso notes. Dusty fine tannins, long ending with an oaky mineral character. Developed well! Tasting Sample!

On the eve of Fathers Day I opened the 2014 Echo de Lynch Bages. The blend is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot.

The nose has opulent dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, big in the black currant, licorice, tobacco, violet and dark rich soil.

On the palate the dark fruit continues through with black cherry, blackberry, raspberry, black currant, tar licorice, graphite and fresh tolled soil.

The wine is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + grippy tannins that has a crisp lively long finish. An enjoyable wine that is approachable now but can use some more time in the bottle. Continue being safe and Happy Fathers Day to every father out there. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Very persistent but still coiled up tight.

Deep, dark purple heavy Bordeaux blend. High tannin and acidity with notes of blackberry, black plum, black currant and black cherry; cedar, wood and forest floor. Very dry, full-bodied wine. Not my overall favorite, but think it would pair well with meats and heavy dishes like potatoes.

Nice second wine from a producer I usually like. Currants and graphite. Medium plus acidity. Good classic bordeaux with a steak.

Youthful, vibrant, energetic, and ripe red fruit-driven with underlying dried garden herbs, cedars licorice, graphite, and mild asphalt. Nice acidity. Slightly flabby and disheveled but coherent enough to enjoy.

My first turns two and we decided to have a little pre-party this weekend. This was the opener and was a crowd pleaser. For the price, I'd be happy to keep some of these around.
