Given all the great Cabernets that have emerged from this legendary producer, the 1986 Monte Bello remains one of the winery's most monolithic as well as perplexing wines. The color is a healthy deep ruby with little signs of age, but it does not possess the saturated purple color of the great vintages. The innocuous bouquet offers up loamy, earthy, mineral, and red and blackcurrant aromas. The wine is compact and clipped, with crisp acidity and a narrowly constructed, moderately tannic finish.
Medium red, with brick at the rim. Evolved aromas of plum, animal fur, mocha, cedar, game and roast coffee. Supple in texture but a wine with only modest depth, nuance and flavor development. Finishes with slightly dry but light tannins and notes of leather and autumn leaves.
