Community Tasting Note

    February 9, 2014 - Bought on Winebid for $35. Opened for my 40th Birthday. This wine blew me away...not because is was great, but because it was still very good at 40 years old. There was no brett, no oxidation, no barnyard or any off smells at all. Really the best 25 year plus bottle I have had. Much better than a 1980 CSM cab I had a few months ago. It was all Mushroom and forest floor on the nose, and some red fruit after it opened up. Silky in the mouth, but still some tannins. Medium finish. Not at all astringent. I really think a properly stored bottle of this can go a few more years. A great surprise!
