I've been drinking this wine over the last 10 years at least, and it has never tasted better than it is tasting right now. Deep purple to the rim, beautifully evolved but with not a hint of old age in the nose or flavors. Medium-bodied wine with classic cassis-tinged Cabernet flavors, augmented by cherry liqueur, tobacco, and cedary smoke. Pure flavors and finish. Not up to the '95 Bordeaux Blend purchased at about the same time, perhaps, but a delicious, impressive Cabernet that has aged beautifully. - HK 2011-04-07
