    December 10, 2019 - I have now opened 3 of 6 bottles over the last 5 years that I purchased on release. Each time has been disappointing. The wine is still most completely closed. I opened the most recent bottle 2 hours before tasting (no decant) and retasted over the next 4 hours. No change or development. On Day 2, the wine was somewhat worse. I had one glass left on day 3 and finally some very nice signs of Pauillac were present on the nose and palate. Will this wine ever develop and show it’s promise? I recall enjoying well developed 1989 and 1990 Lynch Bages vintages at about 15 years in the bottle. Will the 2000 ever come around? I’m not sure but will wait at least another 5 years before tasting another bottle.

    November 23, 2019 - Pre-Thanksgiving Family Wine Night: Had this over a short decant and consumed over the proceding 5-6 hours. Nose very full of red fruit. On the palate, tobacco, chocolate, and possibly plum? Overall very good. Great Bordeaux.

    November 22, 2019 - I meant to open 1985 vintage. This is too young. The 1985 that I drank a few weeks ago was so much better. This has not entered into tertiary flavours yet. No barnyard funk. Acidity over powered the fruit tonight.

    November 20, 2019 - Similar to prior note; outstanding, classic, left bank Bordeaux that has entered its prime drinking window, went beautifully with prime rib, drink or hold (no rush - long life)

    (Lynch Bages) This was very very closed on the nose. I actually didn't smell anything. I swirled and swirled but could not really coax anything. It was the end of the bottle too. The palate was tight but I got more out of that than the nose. Somewhat fleshy with dark concentrated fruit, nice acids and some pretty clamby tannins. The fruit though extended on the finish. It was sweet, classy and very nice. Do not open for at least five years.

    (Lynch Bages) This was completely closed down. Hint of earth and mineral on the pretty ungiving nose. Dense and ripe with great fruit. Long, long, long but also tannic, tannic, tannic. Incredible underlying material but very tough to taste today.
