($100) Full red-ruby. Aromas of cherry, leather and meat, with dusty and minty nuances. Then surprisingly sweet and silky in the mouth; classic dry-but-sweet claret flavors framed by firm acids and solid, ripe tannins. Not fat but certainly palate-coating and long. This got better and better with aeration.

Tawny rim showing age. Nice powerful nose but a little bit less than the 1982 Haut Bages Liberal opened earlier. Some sediment and was decanted for less than 30 minutes. Beautiful wine and drinking quite well. Nice acid and well rounded. Good nice finish though not remarkably long. Given the acid, appears that it should drink well for a little while longer.
