The 1986 has been on a downhill slide since I first tasted it and rated it 83. The wine is diluted and weedy, with no intensity or concentration. At present, it exhibits a shallow garnet color with considerable lightening at the edge. The nose is filled with aromas of roasted vegetables and washed-out red currant and cherry fruit. Earth, tannin, and acidity dominate this meagerly-endowed wine. It has no place to go but down. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted 3/97.
