What a great buy this has been since release. Much better than more famous properties costing far more than this modest producer.
Dark color. Great aromatics. Full palate.

Leather and tobacco, Good current flavor. I do not feel it will improve any more with age.

Cork disintegrated but the wine was remarkably pure and fresh. Purple color, gorgeous fresh aromas of leather, plum, licorice, graphite, with matching flavor profile. 1986 vintage!!!

Last bottle of this. The nose is lush with dark fruit and black olive. The palate shows vegetal and earthy with just a little fruit remaining. Time to drink up.

1986. Surprising amount of fruit. Getting a little port-like but still has delicious plum and violet flavors.
