Not the most pristine bottle but still showing well. I guessed it was an early 80s!

Still very dense and concentrated. Lasting impression: incredibly focused, and culminating with a complex, powerful, long, evolving close.

Lacking a nose and any finish. No depth or complexity. Dull. Some slight bitterness

So elegant and gentlemanly! The opposite of the crass 2011 in the oversized, napa style bottle.

Only slightly past it's prime, still good soft fruit, acid was light, overall still present and tasty

Last half of a bottle that was Coravin'd last summer. Oxidized. Do not rely on Coravin with older, brittle corks.
