Somehow I have the feeling that to the extent this vintage is going to appeal to me, it's going to be in earthy wines like du Tertre...I just picked up an 86 (Talbot)...

Well, back we go to D'Armailhac. It's pure raspberry. But no matter, you don't think you relate to those flavors so you don't, and for the reasons you mentioned. It's something else about the wine you like, and that's entirely fair.
