One of the prettiest noses in this group with forward, elegant, fine, ultra spicy aromas framed by the barest hint of sous bois leading to medium weight, relatively fine flavors and a long but fairly tannic finish. This resembles the '87 in the sense that time will eventually resolve the tannic structure but it's hard to see the nose ever improving from here. This is an undeniable success for a difficult vintage. Consistent notes.

This is another fully mature La Tache that requires drinking over the next 4-5 years. The medium garnet color exhibits some lightening at the edge. The wine reveals an attractive, herbal, earthy, berry fruit-scented nose. Slightly tannic, but soft and diffuse, this wine is likely to dry out by the end of the century.

Still good, but didn't have the depth that we expected. "A little flat" for a La Tache
