The 1996 may not be as profound as I had predicted from cask, but it is an exceptional wine. Dark ruby-colored, with a complex nose of dried herbs, Asian spices, and black cherry jam intermixed with cassis, it possesses outstanding purity, and considerable tannin in the finish. This classic, medium to full-bodied, traditionally made wine improves dramatically with airing, suggesting it will have a very long life.

Intense. Brillant. Clean. Discreet. Fresh. Fruity. Somewhat complex. Smoky. A bit animal. The entrance into the mouth is enveloping and carressing, juicy. The wine mets in the mouth and the pleasure is there. For my part I would like a bit more structure after the middle. However, the wines finishes long on nice aromas.
