Default 1996 Chateau Lynch Bages

I grilled lamb chops last night and found a bottle of 1996 Chateau
Lynch Bages in my wine cellar at the farm. The wine was still dark
purple with no signs of age as I decanted it. Nose of sweet creme de
cassis and graphite. Still quite young on the palate. Lot's of
cassis, blackberry, a bit of cedar and stones. The tannins are well
resolved but the wine still has years of life left. Still a baby but
drinking well. "A"
