Man - this is was an attempt for the ages - 1966 - raleigh wine mafia - out of town guests and bald head members with a hat covering Daniel’s head - @Mark Farrell - thanks for coming to visit - see you soon - this bootle was tired but drinkable — 2 months ago
On its way out, but it’s pure Bordeaux! Completely drinkable and notes if leather, tobacco and olive on the end pallet. Was perfect 5 years ago!! — a month ago
Dark brown/ ruby in color with a wide brick rim.
On the nose blackberries, plums, oak, earth, vegetables, wet leaves, herbs, black pepper, forest floor and light metals.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, tobacco leaf, vegetable and black pepper.
Short finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
I'm pretty sure I would have liked it much better 10 years ago, but this 40 year old Bordeaux is still drinking very nicely. So nice to see that.
I did not decant it, and it didn't last for more than an hour. After 15 minutes of airtime, tannins show up and bring more structure to the wine.
This gem is from the great 1982 vintage, and drinking these kind of wines is always a great experience. It's like a history book in a glass.
Thank you John for sharing this with me.
Really enjoyed it by itself, and paired very nicely with a stinky Camembert cheese.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels for over a year.
12% alcohol by volume.

Delectable recognized the the Zeitgeist bottle, but as the picture illustrates, we shared three different wines. ‘18 Zeitgeist Cab Franc, ‘05 Chateau Leovile Barton, and a ‘66 Mission Haut Brion. Great time talking business and drinking wine on a sunny March afternoon @ Taylor’s Wine Shop. We all thought the ‘66 was past its prime. The ‘05 was awesome and I thought the ‘18 cab franc had nice fruit and plenty of complexity. — 2 months ago
