It’s a wine with great potential, density and weight. Touches of chocolate and licorice combine with flavors of dark plum, toast and spice. Drink from 2018.

A dense, chewy wine for the vintage, with plum, currant and blackberry character. Full body, polished tannic texture and a bright finish. Very pretty indeed. This needs time to soften. Try in 2019.

(NM90-92 points) The 2011 Lynch Bages is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot raised in 75% new oak. It has an elegant understated bouquet compared to its peers with pure blackberry and cedar aromas linear and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins a gentle but firm grip with a harmonious crisp quintessential Pauillac finish with graphite lingering on the aftertaste. This is a stylish Lynch Bages born to be drunk and enjoyed. Tasted April 2012.

This has solid guts, with plum, currant and blackberry fruit melded together at the core, while notes of charcoal, warm tobacco and singed iron form the backdrop. Should be very solid when it comes together after some cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2028. –JM

The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Opaque at the core with a deep purple rim. Incredibly primary and closed in its current state with a very shy nose of red cherry cedar coffee and a touch of toasty oak. The palate offers vibrant (if slightly off-balance) acidity and fruit-driven flavors of red cherry currant and plum. Good length on the finish. A bit disjointed in its current state this will hopefully come together in time. Enjoy 2017-2030.
