Go a of blackberry liqueur. Like compote cooking. Beautiful but a decade young. Currently all fruit. A certain coolness to it.

Tried this for a second time. This bottle didn't have much fruit left, but was very interesting and complex. A great bottle of wine.

This bottle was perfect. Single owner. Big Cabernet with all the edges softened. Dense core to the fruit. No significant signs of fading. Best bottle I've had of this in recent memory.

Extremely firm - Almost Pauillac like - a little vegetal in the finish increased its austerity

Towering about the other 5 wines in tonight's blind tasting, massive redfruits, great acidity hides the massive tannins, great wine that seems close to first growth quality!!

Nose of earth, currants and leather. Big and tannic as one would expect for an '86 Bordeaux. Solid and enjoyable; preferred aromas more than flavors.
