Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Paulliac 1986

Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, New York NY.

Garnet.  Pencil lead, your grandfather’s leather wallet and meat-skin aromas; burnt, smoky herbs like when you throw them into a hot skillet.  Cedar and oxtail flavors chisel down to a spinal column of red currant fruit.  Not so much mineral as carbonized by its structure.  Now – 2025+.
