There was no controversy over the 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley. It exhibited significantly less of the fruitcake cedar herb component of the 1986 Alexander Valley and more of the classic blackcurrant tobacco toasty oak personality. Rich and fleshy with a deeper garnet color containing less orange and amber at the edge this full-bodied lush concentrated wine was hedonistic voluptuously-textured thick and juicy. While the 1986 Alexander Valley requires consumption over the next several years the 1986 Napa Valley will drink well for another 7-10 years.
