Better than I anticipated. A sleek and racy wine.Ruby-amber color. Aromas of cedar cigar boxtobacco mint and mushrooms with hints of redfruits follow though to a medium body with finetannins and a long silky finish... Better than I anticipated.

Medium garnet-colored with moderate amber at the edge the 1978 Latour offers a spicy saddle leather tobacco dried herb earthy nose with sweet fruit trying to poke through. Interestingly new oak also makes an appearance in the flavors. Medium-bodied elegant and fragrant but possibly beginning to dry out this fully mature wine requires consumption over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: now-2010.</P>
