About the wine

Tasting notes

Gobs of sweet, mineral-laden, black-raspberry, and cassis fruit. The fruit dominates the wine's structure, a positive sign given all the wine's tannin and body. Rich, pure, and youthful, this 1986 is accessible now, but will unquestionably last another 10+ years. It is a profound, well-balanced Cabernet with well-integrated acidity and tannin.
