Level below the neck; the wine was showing age with some browning at the edge: some fruit on the nose but slightly dusty; it improved after awhile in the glass and there was some fruit to offset the drying tannins. Needs to be drunk now if this bottle is anything to go by.

We drank this with dinner (Grilled NY Strip) on 3/10/08. It was decanted for about an hour. It was an unusual color...reddish brown with an orange tint. It had aromas of moldy rotting wood, forest floor, vanilla, old smelly socks, lanolin, burnt toast & coffee...unusual and interesting on the nose. It had flavors of mushrooms, coffee & burnt toast on the palate. I could not detect any fruit. It was all earthy and just a little medicinal. It had medium body, was very smooth and elegant with a distinct (and slightly unpleasant) tartness.

Wow. Opens with mature aromas of barnyard and horse saddle. After about an hour lead pencil emerges and the wine is starting to hit its spot. Quality fruit and so very elegant in the mouth. Long clean finish. Super wine which clearly gains in the glass. There's absolutely no rush to drink this wine as I think it will last 10 more years.

Really solid food wine for the price if not particularly interesting. Classic '86: well rounded, fruity but with good acid.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
