Lot #968. Valandraud 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Score: 91-92 ST.
"Saturated ruby-red color. Lively aromas of black raspberry, black plum and smoky, spicy oak. Supple and very intensely flavored; not as fleshy or fat as the '95 but seamless. Again, has plenty of firming acidity. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins and persistent spicy flavor. From a just-racked barrel: More precise nose hints at violet. Lush and suave in the mouth; seems fatter but every bit as fresh." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 1998
Notes: Nicked label.
Estimate: $550
