Another 4th Friday for the books!

The theme for this 4th Friday seemed to be old wines that hold their age well...this was no exception. Crazy that a wine this age (older than me!) can still have such color and fruit to it. Fruit was almost secondary and very dirty/dusty...mainly blackberry. Some old cranberry notes came out on the finish...secondary notes of barnyard and herbs. Aging gracefully.

1986 vintage - so young easily could go 10 more years. Tons of fruit but delicious
