53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot. Deep purple color (darker then I would have guessed considering the age of this wine) with a garnet rim. Aromas of blackberry jam, roasted meat, smoke, violets, forest floor and oak. Cooked blackberries, dried currants and earth on the pallet. Full bodied with a very long finish. Quite opulent and rich, even at twenty-plus years old. Mellowing with age but still fresh and powerful. Really nice treat. Thank you for sharing, James W. — 17 days ago
A very dense Ruby in colour. Rich red and black fruited perfume with nuances of earth and dried fig - a lovely Margaux perfume. A beautiful mature medium bodied claret from an excellent vintage. Great length and perfect balance with sandy dry tannins. Would go on into the latter part of this decade but very irresistible now. One of the better 3rd growths which reminds us why we like mature Bordeaux. One of the “1001 Wines to drink before you die.” An excellent accompaniment to Rump Cap. — 16 days ago
