Very good deep red. Sweet, sappy aroma dominated by roasted plum. Thick, palate-caressing fruit offers outstanding depth of flavor and sweetness. Very fine tannins coat the entire mouth. Very strong finishing fruit. The clear standout today among the trio of '96s. (ST)
The sensational 1996 Barbaresco Balin displays a saturated ruby color, and a provocative nose of black cherry liqueur, melted road tar, vanillin, and floral scents. Full-bodied, with layers of glycerin and fruit, this is a mouth-coating, rich, surprisingly silky-textured Barbaresco. (RP)
