Double decanted and drank over the course of a couple hours alongside a '79. No specific notes taken, but the table consensus was the '79 was showing much much better than the '94. The '94 was thin, a bit flat and out of balance. Glad to read that other people have had better bottles of this.
This Lynch-Bages still appears young in some aspects, with its deep ruby color and quite primary nose. There are aromas of cassis, cedar, graphite, barnyard, and leather. Medium weight on the palate with good, but not great, concentration. Good balance, with slightly higher acidity but round tannins. A medium length finish. Ultimately, this is far from one of the best vintages from Lynch-Bages. But this is a wine that is drinking well right now, with little to dislike. It's just not an exciting wine, and is somewhat easy to forget when compared to other vintages from Lynch-Bages.
