    June 11, 2016 - This is fantastic. Gentle sweet berry fruit off set with dark licorice and lead tannins. Fabulous with a filet. The only short coming is a slightly truncated mid-palate, but who cares? This is delish.

    May 27, 2016 - Beautiful garnet robe, cigar box and forest floor on the nose, full fruit with good balance of wood and tannins. Will last longer, but great now.

    May 8, 2016 - Close to perfection. Now fully mature this wine is bursting with fruit but in total harmony with subtle tannins. A long lingering finish. The only flaw is a slight lingering residual bitterness. This the best Lynch Bages I have tasted.
