(a blend of 79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 10% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot; 3.54 pH; 6.03 g/l total acidity; 81 IPT; 13.2% alcohol):  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 soft, round and ripe in the mouth, with persistent flavors of black cherry, cassis and cinnamon.  A very serious wine offering impressive definition and very good balance, turning almost austere at the back, but with a pretty, pristine quality to its repeating floral and black fruit notes.  Finishes with smooth, building tannins:  don't even think of opening this beauty for another eight to ten years.  One of the best vintage for Lynch-Bages in recent memory.

Great red!

This is one of my all-time favorites, (starting back with their 1997 vintage!). Back then it was only $60.00! Now I can only justify it for those rare, but special occassions at $119.00 each!
