    September 21, 2019 - At my wifes birthday dinner. My brother in law brought a bottle which he opened three hours prior to us drinking it. The nose was all dark fruit. The palate was dark berris, leather, dried leaves and tobacco. The finish was moderate to long and accenuated the tobacco flavors. Drinking well at almost 25 years with what I would imagine many more to go. If you are not decanting use a vintorio or some aerator with a filter as there is quite a bit of sediment.

    August 3, 2019 - Utterly disgusting. Perfectly cellared since release. Last bottle. Wasn’t flawed, just NEVER opened up at all. 5 hour decant. Nose was nice enough, but everything else was FLAT. Hugely disappointing after several tastes along the way.

    July 24, 2019 - Wine holding better than expected. Bottle variation? This should last another 15+ years.

    May 25, 2019 - Had this out of a half bottle, which I had since release.. In the beginning tertiary aromas were predominant.
    Interestingly it needed at least an hour to open up. Bouquet of some cassis, truffles, cedar and some green tobacco leaves. On the palate quite fresh and still challenging tannins.
    I guess this should hold another decades in a standard bottle.

    (Lynch Bages) Beautiful nose of tabac, flowers, kirsch and minerals. Palate has loads of sweet fruit with beautiful restraint and great finish with sweet tannin. Great sense of finesse. Very impressive and I believe the first time I have had '95 Lynch.
