However those with modern day tastes for soft easy-going supple wines may not enjoy the 1975 Leoville Las-Cases. Why? It is a tannic backward old style wine cut from the mold of such vintages as 1948 and 1928. The color is a dark ruby/garnet with a hint of amber at the edge. The nose offers up distinctive mineral lead pencil sweet blackcurrant scents with flinty overtones. Full-bodied thick and concentrated as well as atypically muscular and powerful this should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage. There are sensational levels of richness and intensity. While the vintage's tough tannin level ensures another 20-35 years of longevity the wine may dry out by that time. I thought this wine would be at its peak by the mid-nineties but it still needs another 5-8 years of cellaring. It is a very impressive albeit backward and hard wine.</P>
