A nice old wine. Soft, good balance, pleasant finish. Was not decanted. It seemed to knit together better after breathing for an hour. Not one to save any longer.

2004 Bodegas Navalon Tempranillo Valdepeñas Anciano Gran Reserva - Aged 10 Years

An excellent economical way to enjoy a 10-year-old wine right off the store shelf. A slight sweet blackberry fruit at the start mellows into a mild tobacco finish.

Bad cork, but no leakage. It just disintegrated. Decanted and drank with stroganoff. Very pleasant -- soft taste but still good structure. Cedar nose.

Guess I kept this bottle a little too long. Still it was a treat. Light brown (Scotch-like) color. Mutted floral nose, not at all musty. Light body; long, sweet sherry finish.

This was a big disappointment. Decanted 4 hours early. Good cork, no noticable flaw. Dark color, not much nose or flavor. No better the next day. A sibling was excellent 3 years ago. I will wait 3 years before I try another.

dark purple color; full body, good balance, big fruit, long finish. Paired surprisingly well with turkey because of acidity in the wine and flavor in the stuffing.

Found in a damp nook in the basement - the label looked like an ancient parchment - the vintage was determined by a vestage of the art - dark color, subdued nose and finish, good structure and flavor.

Found with severly low level (bottom of shoulder) - still good color, but very musty nose - decanted, but did not drink with dinner - after 2 hours the nose improved almost to neutral - but the structure and finish was decent. Still a classic wine if the cork had held up.

Decanted 2 hours (should have been longer); dark color with no sign of a brick edge; subtle nose; firm cedar and tobacco body; long finish. This is still a young wine, and I think patience will be rewarded.

Jusk OK when opened, but showing some character a week later (I misplaced the bottle). So I think it will improve and open up over the next 3 years.
