    July 24, 2016 - Deep and dark, but not at all brooding as it is able to successfully pair rose petals, fresh blackberry and fine acid with the darker elements. Such a compelling vintage of Lynch Bages. Drinking well now but has multiple levels of evolution yet to go and will live a long time

    July 18, 2016 - Decanted for 2 hours. Lovely nose with truffle, licorice, soil, graphite, tobacco and black fruit. Palate was very powerful and complex with excellent length. Still young.

    July 16, 2016 - Decanted 45 minutes. This was wonderful. Dark, brooding color - no way you would guess its age. Dark fruits and forest on the nose, big but balanced on the entry, and a nice finish that still shows a little tannin but enjoyable and will probably get better. A-/A
