Tasting Note:

This is a wonderful example of Lynch Bages. It is big and brooding, serious and grand scale with inky, smokey, mineral infused earthy black fruit, then one notices a delicate fragrance of flowers, graphite, spice and hedgerow fruit. Deep and concentrated, this has waves of pure, salty fruit - there is real authority and power without feeling cumbersome or drying. This is a profound yet refined example that leaves you with a gorgeous salinity and pure notes of dark cassis as the impeccably managed tannins grip the mouth. Another very accomplished Lynch Bages! 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
