Lafite 1981 OWC 6.0L (Slightly Tissue Stained Label)
1981 Lafite - Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1, Jan 1998: This wine is close to full maturity, but it is capable of holding for another two decades. It reveals the classic Lafite bouquet of red and black fruits, cedar, fruitcake, and tobacco-like aromas. In the mouth, this medium ruby/garnet-colored wine displays a delicacy of fruit and sweet attack, but subtle, well-defined flavors ranging from tobacco, cigar box, cedar, and fruitcake. This is a savory, soft Lafite Rothschild that is pleasing to both the intellect and the palate. Anticipated maturity: Now-2018.
