    January 17, 2008 - That’s it for the 96 Red Shoulder, it’s my last bottle, and clearly the weakest and most mature of the bottles that I’ve opened. This example shows clear signs of thick butterscotch, caramel . Little fresh fruit, the butterscotch components overwhelm all others. Ragged finish with some lemon and elevated acidity. It was best within the first 30 minutes but then degraded after that. If this is a representative example, then the 96 is now done.
