Very savory. Slightly stinky and tangy with almost tomato like vegetable notes. This has lovely sweet fruit still and is a great bottle.

Astounding amount of fruit for its age and it was still drinking well 90 minutes post pop. An enduring stud from @David L that was truly impressive. Not impressive in a “damn good for a 50 year old wine” way but just plain damn good. Resolved tannins, minimal bricking, palpable nose of violets, flavors of garrigue, bay leaf and bruised plum covered in damp earth.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Bloodied tomato, stinky cherry and raspberries. Color was gorgeous for the age. A nutty note on the finish with an earthy and mulch like note too. Leave it to
@David L to bring a wine like this! Simply incredible for 54yrs young!

Absolutely spectacular and a Showstopper! Beautiful amberish, caramel color, and still perfect. Had an incredibly long finish and felt like velvet on the palate. Loved every bit of it.

Supposedly from an original and not reconditioned, but way too fresh for that to be the case imo. Still very good, but had to wade through some youth to get to the good stuff.

Floral, anise, caramel nose - very fresh color and palate. Gorgeous, long and just really a wow experience for me.
