The deep color, the rich and intense nose, as well as the splendid structure are close to those of 1986. The tannins are equally ripe and powerful, perhaps slightly less concentrated but also less austere.
This has both sinew and flesh, with taut dried red currant, blackberry and plum skin notes that are forced to expand outward as the core of black tea, charcoal, plum paste and dark humus fills in quickly behind them. The charcoal-tinged grip carries the finish, with more bass than treble at first, but there's perfume here as well. Seriously long and the most overlooked of the truly great vintages here.
