After an hour of beathing this wine realized a rarefied elegance and opulence. Of course raisined fruits and if I was forced to give a criticism, it may have been a tad sweet. However, nothing about this wine was ‘over the hill’. A truly stunning achievement!

This wine appears to be obviously way past its prime. It simply didn't have anything going for it upon opening. After an hour of breathing it wasn't any better. This was probably an excellent wine years ago but no longer. For this reason I think it is unfair to rate it. I have one more bottle, if that is significantly better I'll post.

Opened at 2pm and began drinking at 9pm. Did not decant. Clear elements of mint and eucalyptus but well-integrated and not overpowering. Was drinking very well and I'd guess has another 5 to 10 years ahead of it.

Opened at 2pm and began drinking at 9pm, not decanted. Well balanced showing mostly fruit. Was not getting tired although I think it is time to drink them up.

Opened at 2pm and began drinking at 9pm, not decanted. Beautifully balanced demonstrating both fruit and earth. Compared to 1991 Conn Creek Anthology which was fruitier and 1992 Mouton-Rothschild which tended to be earthier. In comparison to these two, the Spottswoode was my preferred wine. However there was also a 1987 Vega Sicilia Unico and that stole the show for me.
