Lovely and youthful at 19 years old. Very longilinear and elegant, a typical 1996, lacks typical Lanessan brawn on the palate. Finishes very long and fresh. Could be kept easily for another 5-10 years. Superb QPR.
Decanted for a couple hours then consumed over and evening saving a glass for day two. Upfront it was in a nice place with mature fruit and resolved tannins, just a hint of pencil lead and a medium finish. Day two it hollowed out a bit and is just not as plesant. I would drink these in the next year or two if you want them at peak.
Garnet, sediment with obvious bricking, Still with a lovely nose of black fruit, barn and fall wood, cedar, refined alcohol....nice sediment, attack with classic Bordeaux refinement, mellow tannins...would buy more
