Lovely balance and earth and dark fruit. Two different bottles. This is the rating of the better one. The other gets an 88.

At Brane tasting. Acid and tannin still untouched but the fruit is on the wane, giving an overall slightly disjoined whole. Still - at almost 40yo, still an amazing effort.

Not the best example. 1986 drinking well but last it's prime. Nose amazing but taste doesn't live up
