    1986 was a really mild year in Napa from what I remember reading. I have to look it up.

    Drink that '87 ASAP.
    Thanks.

    Where are you going to look it up?

    Look at the Vintage Chart. 1987 and 1986 were probably the best of the 1980s although 1990 and 1991 were far better as I remember. Let us know what it was like.

    Well Bogey, I hope it was resting on it's side in a cool place. If not, (and probably even if) don't be expecting bright, ripe fruit flavors to come across. Get ready for something more redolent of lovely goat's butt, beef blood, sweaty leather, rotting prunes, and steaming compost heap. YUM-O!!!!

    And yes, some people LOVE that stuff.

    my palate is far too nouveau to develop the patience for such complexity. i've had some experiences which have kept me curious, but i'm impatient and can't sit on a wine long enough to enjoy its fruit, which is why i'm like a few and out with whatever i drink.

    maybe some day.

    Same here. I'm also much more of a new world wine lover than the old world stuff. I'm not big on "wet leather" or "musty earth" in most things in my life, especially stuff I'm drinking.

    I've REALLY tried the scotch thing and just can't get on board. Maybe it's being a gin drinker, I don't know, but scotch tastes like ass to me.

    It has been in a cool, dark place on its side since 1989, the year I bought it.

    I just drank the whole bottle of this with my Outback NY Strip. Yum! Costco comes up with some very good deals.
