Apiary w/Marty, Keith and Suzanne (NYC): The nose is beautiful - wild strawberry, light sweet leather, with an underlying raspberry core. On the palate, sweet fruit, strawberry rhubarb. The tannins are quite light. A great, sweet palate presence without weight. Coming back to this wine after some air, I am amazed by its sweetness, lightness, femininity and overall charm and quality.
Nobody could believe the wine was 39 years old. Quite a lot of fruit, and the color was still youthful. An elegant wine, about balance and finesse more than power. I couldn't stop drinking this one. B+

(Lopez de Heredia Rioja "Vina Tondonia") This is a great Tondonia. Youthful color with nose of dark fruits. Very primary, animal nose but with some serious fruit. Palate was deep and very concentrated and also youthful. Amazing that this is over thirty years old. Really mouthfilling and lacey with a great finish. This is showing great but has ALOT of time to get better.
