Not a typo. Should have not kept this one that long, but the bottle is still good! 1975 ... not a bad year ... ;). Well, the wine shows its age but it is still very drinkable

Rich, soft and smooth after two hours in decanter. Worked beautifully with grilled steaks.

Opened march 2017. Pepper. Black fruit. Well balanced acidity. Aged leather. Rich and wonderful. Much more depth and complexity than expected.
