Possible the bottle is off? Fairly lean, mature to declining, interesting minerality but little fruit and tea bag tannins. Strong metallic flavour ruins an otherwise okay but not amazing wine. lacks the depth of last two bottles.

This was a magnum 1994 Talbot. Red clear color; first nose, roasted vanilla; second nose, China ink, smoked oak; on the palate, balanced acidity and fruit, full body, complex; long clean finish.

Nice concentration and richness, but the oak is too dominant and wood tannins close down the wine. Quite typical of Lamy wines in their use. I'd guess that the wine has enough richness to swallow the oak in 3-5 years -- wouldn't drink it before then.

2004 Château Grand-Puy Ducasse

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

In my opinion almost perfectly developed right now, still with freshness in the fruit, smooth tannins and well-integrated oak. I would say perfectly balanced. Very elegant and transparent (some would say watery) on the mid-palate as many 04s. Love it.

Red

1995 Chateau Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend more

'02-'07 Bergström, '95-'97 Musar, and more in Maine (Kirk's Apartment): Pale ruby in the glass with scents of cedar, earth, tobacco, cranberries, pomegranate, saddle leather, raspberries, at the tail end there was a hint of clove and cement dust. In the mouth this light to medium bodied (depending on how long it had been in the decanter...it picked up weight with time open) wine bursts with a melange of red fruits, mushroom, a hint of cedar, and other earthy notes. This wine has always been a favorite of mine, despite the VA that is usually present, I find it gives this some character and in just the right amount adds to the intrigue of this wine.
