aromas of mushrooms, underbrush, eucalyptus, berry patch & cassis

flavors of cassis, juicy and dried red berries, woodsy, hay, hint of carob & coffee beans, wet tobacco leaf

though in a decline, considering cost of $20ish back in the day I’m pretty frickin pleased

1982: From magnum. A sleeper. Impeccable condition, plush mouthfeel. Held it's own in good company of 82's.

1982. Label has as many age spots as I do, but it’s inside that counts! Mature, but if I may quote Monty Python, “I’m not dead yet!” Not that I’d want to hold on to it much longer, every sip was cerebral and sensual.

Mature Pauillac, pencil lead aromas, mature Cabernet Sauvignon, complex and medium-long finish, solid older Bordeaux.
