Unfortunately the bottle was corked. But the bottle itself was very interesting as it was bottled by Ridge Vineyards. "Bottled and imported by Ridge Vinyards, Cupertino, Calfornia" Alcohol 11 - 13 %. Did not know that Ridge bottled Bordaux in the past....
Rob's house. Decanted and drank over 2 hours. At first the nose was rich and the palate was funky with a sour finish. But this rounded out and gained great depth and complexity. All old flavors. Medium finish
Five Decades of Lynch Bages with Richard Brazier (Handford Wines, London): Avoid long decanting here as this beauty is a fragile one and picks up maderised notes of oxidation. That aside this is still a very good wine and a lot of people in the group had this in their top 3. The fruit is there and so is the acidity and soft on the tannin. Still we found it difficult to conclude a rating for this one.
