Saturday, March 16, 2013 - Terrific, classic Pauillac. Nose of cedar and graphite mixed with exotic spices. Still very firm tannins, but beginning to be approachable, much like a young California Cab, just a 23 year-old youngster. Sophisticated complexity on the palate. While the tannis are big, the wine is not monolithic, it offers a sublime subtlety and long finish with overtones of red fruit and cassis to blend with the leathery lead pencil. Softer than the 86s and simply a great wine, maybe as some have suggested, best ever for Lynch.
