This wine is beginning to reveal ruby/orange at its edge. The nose of distinctive weedy, black currant, tobacco-singed, smoky, oaky, and herb scents is followed by a structured, medium to full-bodied wine without the fat and flesh it exhibited a few years ago. Nevertheless, it possesses considerable vitality, muscle, and richness. This 1986 is behaving more like a Medoc than a Pomerol, and requires a few more years of cellaring.
