Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Lynch Bages has a crisp blackberry and cedar-scented bouquet, poised and nicely focused, if simple. Nothing wrong with that. The palate is medium-bodied with good density on the entry, but I detected a green seam that nags away and upsets the finish. If that unwanted green element was not present, it would replicate the promising showing from barrel. However, it is here at the moment. Re-tasted at the property in July 2016, the bouquet was correct and there was more roundness to the texture, although there remained that slight greenness on the finish. I might not use the word superficial to describe this Lynch Bages. That might be too strong. But it does feel like a wine discombobulated by the challenging growing season.
