1969 vintage is holding up well. Soft mulled wine flavored and very soft mouth feel. Not bad for a 46 year old non reserve Mondavi Cab

Special experience. Bottle from Robert's cellar. Perfect condition. Seems like it could age for quit a bit longer. Elegant and relaxed.

Birth year on my birthday, didn't expect it to be so fresh, lots of fruit, great tannins, 12% alcohol!

Didn't hold high hopes that this would be as good as it was. Cork soaked to w/in a mm of the top but no seepage. (Thanks to the collector I bought it from who obviously had stored it well all these years.) it was one note front to back w/o any tannins. Prune, raisin, and your grandad's den. I think my first thought was "This is Hugh Hefner in a bottle." Within 15-20 minutes it had turned into a crazy girlfriend and changed her disposition. Still nice but heavy on the "old man" vibe.
Hard to put a number on this one...
Would I shell out the money for another bottle? No. Do I regret the purchase? Not a bit.
