Lacked some acidity but this little baby was seductive, luscious and drinking typical for a very giving vintage. Hey, I must’ve liked it as I ordered a case afterwards. 😄🍷 Oh, in splits so even more fun!

Dark brooding blue fruit with salinity, a hint of sour and green. Pure and long. Quite lean and light. Good.

Tart and dried red fruit, sanguine, some NFO, potpourri, blood orange rind, and potting soil. Med tannins, med+ acidity, excellent!

Bright with dried cranberry, herb, cherry, citrus rind aromas. Floral red fruits and herbs on the palate. Great texture and length with framing, fine-grained tannin. Juicy and delicious now with some time in the decanter. But would like to see it again in 3 to 5 years

Drinking so well today: peppery, meaty & dense, but wonderful freshness for 1996

Magnum. Really delicious and drinking great right now. 22 years old and still fresh as can be. A very nuanced and elegant bottle.
