    May 2, 2020 - - Brick color - Surprisingly alive and well after 39 years. While still enjoyable this wine should not be held longer. Popped and poured tannins were mild but still present. Drink now and enjoy

    December 22, 2018 - Still going, although no reason to hold any further. Tobacco and beef blood, with some mid-palate thinness that our red meat dinner helped smooth over. Mild menthol notes too.

    November 14, 2018 - Popped and poured, which was the right thing for this wine. Beefy nose. The palate has lots of red fruit, tobacco, with good acidity and moderate tannins. Definitely fully mature, and one to not buy to hold. Drink up.
