Really tight. Needs another 8-10yr. Dark and dry tannins. Tastes best on day three!

Average at very best. Smooth, lightest bodied, and overly simple. Needs at least an hour out of the bottle to develop a semblance of drinkability.

Pretty young thang; still drinking fairly youthful. Plushy Merlot & softer Medoc showing through the Cabernet lense (Called this right bank).

Moderately aged Cru Bordeaux, really opens up in 45-60 min, I'm a little confused but interested. Dusty red grape notes and salty meat

Silky tannins and nice acidity round out the red fruit in this excellent left banker. The 42% merlot is really showing through. Could've sat for another 10 years.

Great vintage, great wine. Paired with rack of lamb...of course. Fat of lamb mixed perfectly with blend of grapes and age. Wow!

Very crisp finish, a little dry, not strong enough flavor for me

Great. 1996 vintage enjoyed in August 2017 at our Lake house in Michigan with trip tip and salmon. 21 year old wine and tasting fine.
