Good color for 30 yrs plus. Flat musty nose but only just opened. Traces of TCA perhaps. Fruity and vibrant in the mouth, though still with that taint. Still worth drinking. Shall retry tomorrow after overnight Vacuvin
Zinfandels (Red not white, per Liz) (Liz's): Decanted at a tasting, but probably should have been decanted right away. There was considerable heat on this, but also great mature complexity. A bit plummy and raisiny. It paired wonderfully with a flourless chocolate cake.

(Fonseca Vintage Port) A moderate colour. Quite an unusual, very tertiary nose, with aromas of cabbage, cod liver oil and a hint of toffee. A very harmonious palate on entry, with gentle, spicy tannins through the midpalate. A lovely texture, elegant rather than lush, balanced and very fluid. The tannins becomes more apparent on the finish. It seems much less complex and developed on the palate than the nose would suggest, and there are still some notes of black fruits. A moderate length. Drinking now.
