I had high hopes for many Left Bank 1995’s but I think 1996 is actually shaping up to be a stronger vintage for Medoc.

Dense and velvety in texture. Coats the palate with black currants and black cherries evolving into flavors of granite and tobacco. Tannins are fine and integrated with excellent structure.

Lovely and plush. Tannins softened with a long decant. Leather and iron with great depth and balance. Wonderful stuff

Deep dark scarlet. Nice vibrant color. Very direct nose. Notes of tart cherries, pencil lead, cranberries, moist soil and some tree bark. Very rich in the mouth. Nice acidity, tannins soft and integrated. Still young and primary. Needs more age and development.
