Wine tasting note: 1996 Rauzan-Gassies Bordeaux

1996 Rauzan-Gassies Bordeaux

28th Apr 1999 GBP19 Bordeaux Table Red

Very deep purple/red, redding at rim - legs!
Perfumed, stewed cassis on the nose with some charred oak - still closed but plummy and deep.
Medium bodied with sweet cassis, tobacco and oak flavours, warm alcohol, and ripe, slightly submerged tannins.
Decent savoury finish with an acidic tang.
Very attractive now with food, but will last at least 5 to 10 years.
