Pingus slightly bin soiled label 1998
The 1998 Pingus is opaque black in color, with evolved, stunningly sweet aromatics. Notes of cassis, licorice, cigar box, spice cake, and toasty oak emerge with coaxing. This full-bodied, opulently-textured, viscous, concentrated wine is fat, expansively flavored, and multilayered. It is an outstanding effort, with well-integrated acidity and tannin.
Alluring aromas of plums and chocolate follow through on the palate of this generous, polished red. Rich yet balanced, with real depth and a long finish. Delicious now, but should improve.
