    January 19, 2015 - I had forgotten about this wine, at 13 years old, I was not expecting much, my luck with older Red Shoulder's has been mixed. It didn't help that the cork crumbled when I tried to pull it, needing to resort to the twin prong puller to get it out. I didn't expect much. What a surprise. Still young, fresh, almost effervescent at the start. Very well balanced, this was a fantastic wine and not on the decline as a I feared. My only bottle, but what a great surprise.
