Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 92
This wine is one of the finest efforts from Bordeaux's right bank in the 1986 vintage. The wine remains deep ruby-colored, with a complex nose suggesting cedar wood, fruitcake, Asian spices, roasted herbs, and black currants. In the mouth, there is moderate tannin as well as impressively concentrated flavors that roll across all the palate's sweet spots. Medium to full-bodied and rich, this 1986 admirably marries power with finesse. The wine is still youthful, but is soft and developed enough to be enjoyed immensely. Anticipated maturity: Now-2012.

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 93
Big, generous and concentrated, supple in texture underneath the firm tannins, with distinctive black cherry, vanilla and smoke aromas and flavors that hold their own against a strong background of wood. This will age a long time; hold until at least 1995.
