We hadn’t tried the ’96 vintage since 2004, so we took a bottle along to a restaurant. When it was first opened, it was typically fruity (strawberries, cherries) in the nose. It began to open up after 30 minutes or so and started to develop the earthy, mushroomy cigar-like aroma. The flavors were also of berries, with hints of chocolate and coffee. Always an extremely complex wine, this one didn’t disappoint. Over the hour it took to finish the bottle, it became increasingly full bodied with subdued fruit and rich earthy notes. At the end of the meal, the tannins were quite evident. We will put this away for at least a couple more years before tasting it again.
