Over 45 years old! Still lively. Searing natural acidity is keeping it alive. Claret-like, pretty

Nose is intense and on the palate is has a great juiciness to it. A bit alcoholic though very drinkable. Not one of the greatest I've had from Swan but still very good. Drink now

Something about those Swan's have the longevity. All of them.

At first balsamic notes like an old Barolo, but gained color and complexity with air, evolving into leathery, mossy, tart cranberry aromas and amazing complexity. Still holding strong, with great acidity. Swan's zins are immortal!
