Robert Parker Score: 91/100
This is a backward, muscular, highly-extracted wine with a boatload of tannin, thus the question mark. The saturated plum/purple color is followed by an aggressively oaky nose with scents of roasted coffee, blackberries, and prunes. It is somewhat of a freak for a 1996 Pomerol given its richness, intensity, and overripe style. Medium-bodied and powerful, but extremely closed, and in need of 5-7 years of cellaring, it will be interesting to follow this wine's evolution to determine if the tannin fully integrates itself into the wine's concentrated style. If not, it will have a slight rusticity to its tannin and structure. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. I sense this wine will be much more controversial than I had anticipated.

Wine Spectator Score: 88/100
Aromas of coffee, spice and raisin follow though to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a silky and refined aftertaste. Slightly hollow center palate. The oak has turned to cream. At its peak.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.
