Still has some life left in it, improved about an hour after opening. Seemed to firm up a bit as we pretty thin when opened. Still good color and lots of fruit, but still have some life left in it. Don't rush to drink it.
Château Latour vertical tasting ((Wine Watch, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida)): The 1970 Château Latour was the least impressive of the tasting. Still had a surprisingly ripe nose, with black currant, some cherry, and fig. Very soft mouthfeel, but a bit thin on the palate. Reserved on the attack and lacked punch on the mid-palate. Hint of bitterness on the finish. Overall, the 1970 did not impress tonight.

(Chateau Latour) This was showing beautifully. Nose of leather, burnt charcoal, dark cassis and earth. Perfectly mature palate with stellar fruit and wonderful freshness. Killer finish. Not profound but a perfect example of great mature Bordeaux. I would easily drink this again.
