Tasting of 1/3/2010.... Delicious and not at all dried-out, though at this point soft and open, without a lot of structure. Lots of cedar, herb, and coffee notes along with a subtle core of berry fruit. Not surprisingly, no longer has the the depth or length it did 10 years ago, but certainly a delight to drink. Rating: 89. Tasting of of 1/9/08.... Seemed more assertive and youthful than 2005 tasting. Lots of currant and berry fruit along with classic cedar nuances and a touch of tomato in the background. Good depth and length for a wine of this age, without the dried-out feel of the 2005 tasting. Rating: 91. Tasting of 12/26/2005.... Still silky smooth and elegant, but definitely showing its age. Amber around the edges, without the tannic structure to hold the components together. Cedar and smoke in the nose, but no identifiable fruit. Drinkable, but don't expect a religious experience. Rating: 88. Tasting of 5/1/2001.... Profound Bordeaux. Classic red/ruby color. Powerful but seductive aromas of cedar, smoke, and cassis coat the nose. Perfect balance in the mouth, where raspberries, red currants, and dark cherry combine with the cedar to make a complex, perfectly balanced mix. What a mistake not to have purchased a few more cases of this when it was under $12 per bottle! This wine is at its peak of perfection and will be there for years. Rating: 94.

June 2000. This is another Lynch Bages that has never gone through an awkward, disjointed stage where it completely shut down. The color remains a dense ruby with some lightening at the edge. Thick, juicy, succulent notes of creme de cassis intermixed with dried herbs, vanillin, minerals, and anise leap from the glass. Fleshy and full-bodied, with the vintage's voluptuous texture and low acid, fruit/glycerin-dominated flavors well-displayed in its full-bodied personality, this wine tastes young, but isalso ready to drink. Anticipated maturity: now-2015. - Robert Parker

Extremely youthful ruby color, with a hint of garnet. Berry, currant and mint character, with an earth note. Full-bodied, extremely concentrated yet sweet and fruity, with fine tannins and a long, long finish. Inspirational; never considered classic ... Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: 'Fullish, vigorous colour. Youthful, rich, concentrated and very lovely on the nose. Deep rich Cabernet. More exotic and less classy than Grand-Puy-Lacoste. Fullish body. Ripe, rich and spicy. Very good tannins. Very good grip. This is very lovely. Fine plus'.(Clive Coates - The Vine - Oct-2002)
