Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 94 points

  • Purchased at Berns, this wine had a high to mid shoulder fill and an original cork. The wine had a red center and orange/tan rims. The medium+ intensity nose of currants, cherries, clove, mocha, and brown tea was awesome (98 pts?).

    In the mouth this wine was ripe and refined. It took quite a while for the lovely rounded tannin to fill the wine out. It kept getting better and better in the glass and I was surprised how solid the wine's core of fruit was.

    While it is clearly time to drink this wine, it did take 3 hours in the decanter to show its best. Enjoy!

  • Most, if not all of the fruit was gone. The wine was holding up otherwise. It was the color of light tawny and possessed a mushroom character rather than fruit. It was intriguing to sip and enjoy. An old wine with a bit left to give.

  • Brilliant ruby color. Mature mushroom and copper/metallic nose with some remaining dark cherry fruits. A bit tart on the palate, with sour cherry and acid without an hint of tannin left. Classic Lafite with tobacco and lead pencil. Probably better some time back, but on a long, gradual decline that still provides a great experience.
