Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the '80s and '90s (Tabla, Portland, OR): Poured ~30 minutes after opening. Very cloudy, but through that the color is light. There's some stinky barnyard on the nose and not much fruit showing. There's some bright cherry and raspberry on the mid palate, along with strong acidity. Of course there is a bit of the funk from the nose in there as well, but less than expected. There's again lots of funk on the finish, some acidity, and no real tannins remain. Interesting, but certainly not delicious.
