Wine Advocate 92 points

The 1996 may not be as profound as I had predicted from cask, but it is an exceptional wine. Dark ruby-colored, with a complex nose of dried herbs, Asian spices, and black cherry jam intermixed with cassis, it possesses outstanding purity, and considerable tannin in the finish. This classic, medium to full-bodied, traditionally made wine improves dramatically with airing, suggesting it will have a very long life. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2028. - WA, RP (4/1999)

Currant and fresh herbs. Full- to medium-bodied, with plum flavors and a medium finish.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.

Vinous (Stephen Tanzer) 93 points

Very good deep ruby-red. Somewhat sauvage aromas of plum, leather, roasted meat, black olive and tobacco leaf. Supple entry, then juicy and penetrating, with strong but well-integrated acids. A real vin de garde, with a high percentage of cabernet sauvignon. Very St. Estephe. This is far more backward than the rounder, suppler '95, which, like the '98, featured a higher percentage of merlot, says Madame Capbern. ST
