Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

9.2

A few days late in posting the Wednesday Wine Committee wines. Standard format with 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

Enjoyable and drank younger than its age. I always get a cherry swisher sweets note with St Estephe wines. Very tart black cherries, currant, tart plum and herbs all over this wine. Tannins still holding up nicely. Not getting better, but will probably hold for a bit. I guessed mid-‘90s left bank Bordeaux.

@Shay A thanks for the reference point. I find the same with Cos drinks younger than its age.

Terre Siciliane Zibibbo In Pithos 2017

Highly fragrant, floral, iodine, papain, and more than a hint of urinal cake. Overripe cantaloupe, white peach and papaya on the palette. Medium length finish. Very interesting wine but more delicious ice-cold on day 2. — 17 days ago

Final wine for Danube cruise. Still surprisingly youthful and fresh tasting considering the vintage and age. Dark fruits tobacco earth and firm texture and good length. Good value for Americans on a French River cruise boat in Austria. — 7 days ago
