Classic aged claret aromas predominate with plum, blackberry and cedar. The cedar carries the day in a nice weightless sort of way. Appears younger than stated age, much like my Diana.

Lots of bottles were popped for Weston’s 40th! Only posting a few of my highlights! A classic, quality, aged Bordeaux. I believe this was probably even better later on in the evening as it had more time to open and wake from its long nap. Herbs de Provence, leather, dusty and earthy underripe blackberries aromatics. The palate was balanced and restrained. Mostly integrated but still some tannin on the finish. Pencil shavings, cedar, old fig, pipe tobacco and tart black cherries round out the finish. Will hold here for a bit, but not sure it’s getting better.

Lovely balance. Still showing lovely fruit and little tertiary elements.

Seemed a bit tired and operating on a low frequency. Don't have much experience, if any, with old Bordeaux but despite the lack of presence I enjoyed the tertiary notes this wine has. Texturally the wine was elegant and beautifully textured. Curious if past prime or off bottle?

Really had some bottle variation on this one, 3 corked out of the case so far, but when you get a good one it's amazing, this was a really solid bottle, maybe a little less intense than a few other '86's out there, but in a way that's what makes it such a great food wine.
