Decanted for 60 to 75 minutes before tasting. The wine although 25 yeas old held together very well. Very few tannins left so I would say it has little life left in the bottle but was an excellent wine to enjoy with Valentines day dinner. My wife and I both give it a 91 and wish we had a few more bottles to enjoy through out the year.
This showed wonderfully. 30 minute decant, but it could have used 90. Nicely balanced with excellent depth; the cork was in perfect condition. I was surprised how youthful this was and pleased with the 30+ second finish. I recorded this bottle incorrectly in inventory, it was simply the 1986 Napa Reserve. Very enjoyable and at least 5-7 years of good drinking left. Approx $50
