This just smells classy with layers of cool reserved earth, spice, slightly jammy black currant, tobacco, and green herb notes. On entry this is a bit spicy and even shows a bit of oystershell saltiness that yields to precise, transparent black currant and black olive fruit. the tannins are melting away here giving this a rather broad feel but the acidity remains firm and drives the pencil lead and stalk herb finish on and on. At peak and holding for another 5-8 years. 92pts

Aromas are a little funky complete with cedar, a prevalent smokiness, dried earth, dried cherry fruit and black raspberries. Palate is powerful and acidic with dark fruit components, dried tea leaves and a smokiness becoming more earthy as the flavors linger. interesting complexity of the flavors, unique with each taste

Briny, oysterish nose, with some gravel and tobacco flavors there too. Very smokey throughout, round and well integrated. Very nice.

A marvelous bottle of Lynch--better than the 1990 and just a notch below the 1989 in quality. Wondrous aromas of mint, berry and black currant follow through to the palate. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful.--1... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Lynch Bages 750ml
