Average critic rating : 85.5 points



This is a tannic, austere 1996, but it is well-endowed. Copious aromas of spicy new oak are present in the moderately intense bouquet, as well as cherry notes intertwined with dried herbs. The wine is medium-bodied and well-made, with good spice, a slight austerity, and moderate tannin in the long finish. In many vintages La Lagune can be drunk at an early age, but this effort will require 5-6 years of patience. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.|| Wine Advocate.April, 1999



Pretty aromas of berry and vanilla, with a hint of mineral. Medium-bodied, with chewy tannins but a slight herbal edge to the aftertaste. A bit one-dimensional for La Lagune, but still a good bottle. Best after 2000. 25,000 cases made.James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999
