This was bought for me as a present on the strength of a bottle we had which was also a Sauvignon Blanc/Semiilon combination and this was even better. The Semillon added that sweet citrus quality but the Sauvignon Blanc was so so refreshing and smooth. Combined it quenches your thirst beautifully only for wanting more to quench your thirst soon after. But its so easy to drink, the bottle disappeared too quickly. Excellent wine.

Smoke, water and moss on the nose. Potent. Tobacco and black currant with a hint of floral and red fruits (cherry and raspberry). Potent tannins and lots of promise.

This wine played possum over a sampling in the decanter for several hours. Closed and tight for the first few hours, it was unassuming and subtle with high level of tannins, oak, and acidity. It finally opened up after about 6 hours or air, and was brilliant, with red fruits with a touch of vanilla, a great mid palate, and long finish that made its exist with a bit of molasses and sweet tannins. This wine had some finesse as well. I wanted more but it was consumed by the time it started to show.

Still too closed in the bouquet. Will try to taste the wine again in 2-3 years from now.

Sattes Purpur. Leicht animalische, dann rauchige Nase. Fleischig im Ansatz, mit einer gehörigen Portion runder, saftiger Tannine. Langes Finale. Ein fülliger, reicher Wein.

Fully saturated bright ruby. Currently in a slightly dumb phase and aromatically compressed on the nose, revealing cool blackberry and cassis aromas with extended aeration, complicated by notes of cola, flowers, red cherry and sweet spices. Then so... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Lynch Bages 750ml

WA 92pts. - WS 92pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: 1988 or 1995-ish in style, rather than 1996, which seems to be the vintage several 2006s recall, this dense purple-colored wine displays sweet notes of creme de cassis, tobacco leaf, licorice, and some cedar and graphite. The wine has plenty of structure a la 1995 and a backward, muscular personality, but beautiful fruit on the attack and alluring purity and a nicely textured mouthfeel. The finish suggests cellaring for 3-5 years and drinking over the following two decades.

Winemaker's Notes:

This is as good as Pavillon Blanc de Ch Margaux and guess what's best?- it is less than half the price!
