Not really made to be an ager, Chateau Gloria is a stretch at age 16. While still displaying some attractive fruit and spice in the nose, this '86 seemed dried out,slightly vegetal, and out of sync in the mouth. Short finish. Not at all representative of this excellent Chateau. - WB team 2002-06-26
