Had the unfortunate fate to be tasted at the same time as a '85 Lynch Bages, and suffered mightily as a result. Nice, full, smoky, leafy, berry-tinged Cabernet nose. But flavors were rather clipped and thin by comparison. Somewhat holow mid-range and short finish. OK Cab, but probably a little past its prime and at its current age, not in the Major Leagues of Cabs. - WB Team 2000-09-03
