Charity Auction Dinner with Ancient French Rarities--1924 to 1979 (RN 74, San Francisco): Surprisingly dark for its age. Nose not completely clean-some VA and some brett as well. Big, round and lush but curiously, little complexity or flavor interest. Impressive for its mouth feel, but otherwise, little else and not terribly enjoyable right now. Projecting back in time, this must have been a huge, ripe, almost port-like wine in its day.
