(From 2005 Vintage) Black in color, with aromas of blackberry, black licorice, tar, mineral and fresh flowers. Full-bodied and powerful, with ultrafine tannins that last for minutes on the palate. A polished, thought-provoking wine. Shows wonderful purity of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Impressive purple color, ripe cassis fruit, full body and a rich intense finish.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2003 Vintage) This vintage, which may be a little uneven in Pomerol and St. Emilion, is going to rate as very good to excellent in Pauillac as it does in neighboring St. Julien. We taste Chateau Lynch-Bages at 88-90 points and rate its local peers even higher in this vintage with Pontet-Canet jumping out at 89-91 points and Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste in the same range.
