Tasting Notes

"A classic offering possessing the weight of the 1999, but without that vintage’s charm, this structured, tannic 2002 offers a dense ruby/purple color, medium to full body, and the tell-tale Lynch Bages black currant and earthy nose. There is good power on the attack, mid-palate, and finish. It will need 2-3 years of cellaring, and should age nicely for 12-15 years. If more texture and length develop with bottle age (and they should), this wine will merit an outstanding score. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020" - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (10/30/2003, Issue 149), Rating: 90-92

"Very individual fruit character. Lovely texture, very rich, succulent, and masses of potential. Drink 2013-19." - Decanter

"Aromas of currant bush, berries and sweet tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with medium tannins and a long finish. Lovely texture to this wine." - Wine Spectator
