Tasted Dec2009, delicious Cabernet, still fresh, but with secondary characters enhancing the fruit and now fully intergrated oak. Deep long finish which is not only a mark of the vinatge in this area, but a testiment to the good winemaking. Well done.

This is a beautiful wine with an evolved personality and low acidity. The wine exhibits abundant quantities of earthy, smoke and tobacco-tinged, black currant fruit, rich, concentrated, medium to full-bodied flavors, and moderate tannin in the long finish. It is successful, but nowhere near full maturity. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.

A wine that continues to improve with age. Shows loads of ripe plum almost prune with hints of vanilla and mineral. Full chewy and tight. Still needs time.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical. Best after 2008. -JS Wine Spectator.

Much better than I ever remember. Complex aromas of currants, berries and mint. Full-bodied, very tannic, but velvety and caressing. Getting better all the time. Best after 2002. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Lynch Bages 6000ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1995 Ch. Lynch-Bages exhibits medium intense garnet colour, a rich<br/>cedary nose leading on to a palate with abundant quantities of earthy, smoke<br/>and tobacco-tinged, black currant fruit, rich, concentrated, medium to<br/>full-bodied flavours, and supple tannin in the long finish.
