1964- tastes like it could go another 15. Orange rind, dry ripe cherry, baked grapefruit. Stunningly integrated.

Such pleasure and a unique experience! Such a beautiful and complex wine! Orange peel, caramel, fleur de sel, cooked figs and cooked cherries sauce. Very soft mouthfeel and an impressive freshness. An absolute great wine.
Did you know they used about 3% of viura in the blend at the time ? šŸ˜‰

1964 and amazingly fresh. Leather noise with surprise of youth Cherries and violets to taste. Worlds apart but as if there was Rutherford dust quality too.
