Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1986 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91WS). Wine Spectator: "A ripe, supple, rich and complex wine, with layers of currant, cherry, coffee, cedar and spice flavors, and the texture is classic Stag's Leap in its softness. (JL)" (12/1996)
Current Bid: $245.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1986 Château Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 92VN, 92WS). Wine Advocate: "What a remarkable performance! I must admit that I purchased more of the 1985 and 1987, somehow neglecting to secure much of the 1986. Do I feel stupid? As I have written so many times in the past, every time I do a vertical tasting of Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignons, they taste better than my initial laudatory notes suggested. This great wine exhibits a black/purple color, a fabulous, sweet, pure, cassis-scented nose, massive body and richness, and total harmony among its components - fruit, wood, alcohol, acidity, and tannin. Still exceptionally youthful and vigorous, with no signs of age in either its color or taste, this 1986 could easily pass for a 3-4 year old California Cabernet. It is an extraordinary effort that appears to be a legitimate candidate for the 'wine of the vintage.' (RP)" (08/1996)

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (96VN, 95RP). Vinous: "This mirrors the bottle I tasted at the property in 2016: blackberry and graphite on the nose, gawky at first, but coalescing with time. The palate is well balanced with firm tannins, strong graphite scents unfolding with time, superb energy if not delivering quite the finesse and precision that the very best Lafite-Rothschild will bestow. (NM)" (06/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Latour, Pauillac (90RP, 90WS). Wine Advocate: "Tasted from my cellar, the 1986 has consistently been outstanding, falling short of being sublime. The spicy, peppery bouquet reveals aromas of dried herbs and red currant fruit. (RP)" (06/2000)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (96JG, 95DC, 95WS, 94JD, 94RP). John Gilman: "The wine offers up a pure, precise and very deep nose of sweet cassis, cigar ash, a very complex base of gravelly soil tones, a nice touch of cedar and a topnote of cigar wrapper. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and tangy, with outstanding focus and bounce, a lovely core of fruit, ripe, well-measured tannins and a long, complex and very soil-driven finish. This is a classic vintage of Ducru-Beaucaillou in the making, and the re-released bottles are stellar. The wine is just starting to drink, but like so many of the top 1986 wines from the Médoc, it still has room to grow and would continue to benefit from further cellaring." (10/2020)

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Margaux, Margaux (98VN, 97RP, 95WS). Vinous: "The 1986 Château Margaux was even more emotionally moving. Still incredibly youthful, it showed incredible focus and depth, all backed up by considerable structure. As hard as it may seem to believe, on this night the 1986 appeared to still be some years away from peaking. It was striking in every way. (AG) 98+" (02/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (93DC, 91RP, 91VN). Decanter: "A successful mix of intense black fruits with soft tannins and elegance running through it, the wine is really delivering pleasure right now and should have another good decade at this level. The 1986 is more gentle in style than the 1985 at this point, with a sweet fruit quality that suggests it is very much on the plateau. Like all great wines it evolves in the glass, picking up new nuances every time you return to it. 21 days skin contact, early bud break and long growing season. (JA)" (09/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien (100DC, 100RP, 98VN, 97ST, 95WS). Wine Advocate: "The late Michel Delon always thought that this was the greatest vintage he had produced. We often tasted it side by side with the 1982, because I always preferred the latter vintage. Of course, the two vintages are quite different in style, with the 1986 a monument to classicism, with great tannin, extraordinary delineation, and a huge, full-bodied nose of sweet, ripe cassis fruit intermixed with vanilla, melon, fruitcake, and a multitude of spices. The wine has always been phenomenally concentrated, yet wonderfully fresh and vigorous. The wine still seems young, yet it is hard to believe it is not close to full maturity. It is a great example of Leoville Las Cases, and another compelling reason to take a serious look at the top Cabernet Sauvignon-based Medocs of 1986. (RP)" (01/2003)
