The 1995 and 1996 are two of the finest Glorias produced over recent vintages. Both the 1996 and 1995 are uncommonly hedonistic, plump, and precociously-styled wines. Low in acidity, rich in cedary, black currant fruit, medium-bodied, and lush, these two wines will provide delicious drinking young, yet both will age for 10-15 years. The 1995 is lower in acidity, and may not possess quite the density and power of the 1996, but readers looking for high class claret with immediate appeal would be foolish to pass it by. Both wines are sleepers of the vintage.

Harmonious and balanced. Good dark color, with lovely berry and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, silky and caressing finish. Not quite as good as I remember, but very good indeed.

Dark color, strong aroma of leather and oil and hints of stinky cheese. Good acidity. Tannins mellowed nicely, still some hold. Aged but present fruit. Probably could last another 5 to 10 years.
