    1/20/20, 9:46 AM - oldvines....thank you for taking the time to comment....fact is, I decant every wine, and this one for two hours as I remembered my prior experience....I have some '06s as well, any experience with that year?

It needs age and is more about the secondary flavors rather than all about the fruit. My daughters are born in 2004 and 2006 so I have some of both of these wines to give them on their 21st birthdays. I would expect both these wines to be at their primes around 25 years old. I have a bottle of the 1974 that I’m planning to drink later this year. It may be that the ‘06 and ‘04 are still not fully mature.
