It is hard to believe this wine will eclipse the great 1983 but the differences in the two wines are negligible.

It is hard to believe this wine will eclipse the great 1983 but the differences in the two wines are negligible. I do not believe the 1986 makes quite the impact on the palate that the huge massive 1983 does but there is a great deal of botrytis and a profound penetrating fragrance of sauteed pineapple vanillin toast and honeyed peaches. In the mouth the wine is more streamlined than the 1983 but lusciously rich and full bodied with very good acidity and a creamy intense finish. It will be interesting to compare the 1983 and 1986 as they evolve. My guess is that the 1986 will age faster. Anticipated maturity: Now-2012. Last tasted 3/90.</P>
