Release Date: Fall 1990
Opulent richness is the theme here. Mouthwatering blackberry and cassis flavors create the initial impression with the innate sauvage of the Cabernet Sauvignon adding complexity and flavor interest. This wine is very much a Mount Eden Cabernet in its concentration, structure and length yet with an early accessibility uncommon in recent vintages.
Two year in French oak and a light egg-white fining this Cabernet was bottled unfiltered. The ’86 should continue to live well into the next decade and possibly the next century.
