1969 - Well structured and vigorous. Porcini mushroom, damp soil and tobacco give way to muted sour-cherry, red plum and tea. Round and rich in the mouth with a nice balance of fruit, tannin and acidity.

Think the cork failed on this guy or poor storage. Not much there there.

Sadly not showing well. Too much oak and dried out fruit. Better examples out there from the 05 vintage.
