This 5th Growth’s 1986 is classic Pauillac. Aromas of dried leather, dried red fruit and turned earth are followed by dried plum and cassis. The palate is smooth and shows the classic aged Bordeaux from a top flight... This 5th Growth’s 1986 is classic Pauillac. Aromas of dried leather, dried red fruit and turned earth are followed by dried plum and cassis. The palate is smooth and shows the classic aged Bordeaux from a top flight Pauillac vintage. The tannins are all but washed away, the acidity lingers throughout, and the rich flavors of dried red fruit, smoked accents of grilled meats and just a kiss of black truffle on the back end. This is a great wine to drink now and over the next 5 years. Coming from Perfect Provenance Magnums have helped this sleeper survive and thrive.
