Default 1988 Chateau Lynch Bages

Opened last night with grilled local lamb chops 1988 Chateau Lynch Bages. Interestingly enough I noticed that htis wine still had the original price tag on it showing a price of $28.99 which no doubt was a lot for a bottle of wine circa 1990. The wine was still perfect. Still a ruby red in the glass with just a hint of pink at the rim. Nose of cedar and mildewed wood which blew off in a few minutes and after an hour in the decanter it was frangrant with spice box, black cherry and cassis with a fair amount fo cedar notes. THe wne was smooth as silk with just a hint of tannic grip on the finish. Plenty of black fruits and cassis with tobacco and sandalwood flavors at the end. Unmistakable as LB. Nice bottle. "A"
