Very pretty garnet color with lots of light coming through. Initially, something of a musty nose, but that seemed to blow off. Initial mouth sensation has lots of earthiness. Just the lightest touch of Cabernet Sauvignon currant fruit. Some tobacco. Still some very serious tannin to the point that I am critical of the balance. The finish, though, is very rewarding—very mellow and enjoyable.
1992 Bordeaux is supposed to be a disaster, but no one mentioned that to Lynch Bages. On pop and pour, this was a delightfully proper Pauillac. Tobacco, red cherry and chalky minerals. This was terrific from the first pour. Eventually, after 3 hours, it did crack up on the finish and demonstrate the vintage challenges. However, it was stunningly pleasurable for hours. Great showing!
- Ruby color with medium forming legs and aromas of cherry - The fruit is definitely fading on this one. Drank it as part of a vertical of Lynch Bages 92, 93, 94 and 95. The 93 and 95 very showing the best.
