TASTING NOTES

"The 1986 is a highly extracted wine, with a black/ruby color and plenty of toasty, smoky notes in its bouquet that suggest ripe plums and licorice. Evolving at a glacial pace, it exhibits massive, huge, ripe, extremely concentrated flavors with impressive depth and richness. It possesses more power, weight, and tannin than the more opulent and currently more charming 1985. Anticipated maturity: 1996-2010." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #95

"Smells terrific, with great concentration of berry and cassis aromas, but the prominent tannins tend to cover the flavors, requiring cellaring until at least 1995. On balance, the concentration of fruit wins in the end." Wine Spectator

"Lovely deep crimson shading to purple. Particularly healthy colour. Deep, dense, strongly Cabernet aromas that are still unyielding. This wine could mature into something eventually finer than the Talbot but, boy, will it take time. For the moment the wine is dry, dry, dry." JancisRobinson.com
