    January 18, 2017 - Blackberry, coal dust, beef jerky, faint licorice, and tangy acids. I very much prefer the darker character of this vintage. Benefited from 1.5 hr decant

    January 17, 2017 - 1989 vintage tasting of 4 Bordeaux Wines,
    Clinet, La Conseillante, Lynch Bages, and Meyney.
    Nose of cigar box, black currants, and plum, same on the palate, very tasty, subdued fruit, needs 4 more years to peak, big body, opened very slowly during the evening, small amount of soft tannins present, rich and fruity wine, mouth filling, hope you get to enjoy this wine as it ages, long, long finish. My third place and group third place.

    January 7, 2017 - So sad this is my last bottle. By far consistently my favorite wine to drink.

    December 27, 2016 - I can only reiterate the notes from 6 months ago. This is close to perfection. Deep scents of blackberry, red cherry and cedar are heady on the nose, whilst on the palate there is a perfect harmony but with just enough punch in the tannin to remind you what you are drinking. The depth of flavour is phenomenal with an intense and long finish. At present it is outperforming the 1990 and should stay at this level for many years to come. A few hours in the decanter is recommended.
