Beautiful notes of dried herbs, new saddle leather, roasted nuts, black currants, and jammy cherries jump from the glass of this spicy, fragrant 1982. Medium to full-bodied and fleshy, it is the finest La Lagune produced in the last thirty years. Just reaching its plateau of maturity, it appears to have the balance and depth to age effortlessly for 10 more years.

Very dark garnet-red, with an inky center. Ripe berry and tobacco aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with tobacco, raspberry and light toasted oak flavors. Silky finish. Outstanding, if not quite as impressive as I anticipated.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now.

Dark red with little rim variation. Absolutely no sign of oxidation! Hints of cherry, berry, dried fruits and leather on the nose. Medium bodied, smooth texture, with a long finish. Greatly reduced tannins, but they are still there along with acid notes for a silky and velvety finish. I agree with others--this wine is still drinking well. It has great fruit given its age, and may still have another couple of years left. A classic Bordeaux.

Unbelievably good, strong leather upon open that wafted into soft, velvety texture
