Extremely Rare Wine.  Lowest Price Anywhere!

Rated 96 Points by Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

The 1996 Pingus is an astonishing wine that continues to put on weight and add more nuances to its multidimensional personality. The explosive aromatics consist of smoke, jammy blackberry and currant fruit, incense, licorice, cedar, and pain grille. Massive in the mouth, with a sumptuous texture, immense body, high levels of glycerin, and a multilayered mid-palate, this spectacular wine is evolved and accessible.

Rated 96+ Points by Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar - now Vinous)

Deep, bright ruby. Extraordinarily complex, lively nose combines black raspberry, bitter chocolate, nutmeg and an intriguing suggestion of roasted herbs. Amazingly rich and smooth in the mouth; truly explosive fruit offers superb vinosity and snap. Like liquid velvet but with great clarity of flavor. Builds in intensity and seems to grow thicker on the back half. The huge finishing fruit coats the entire palate. Amazing juice.

Rated 95 Points by Wine Spectator

A gentle giant. This inky, massive wine coats the palate with rich, ripe flavors of plum, prune and cassis and plenty of oaky notes of chocolate and coffee. Despite high alcohol, it remains velvety and balanced. Try it with a big steak now, or hold to tame it. Best after 2003
