    November 18, 2018 - horribly corked. a pity too because the color suggests (c/w other notes) relative youth despite its 60+ yrs

    November 7, 2016 - most enjoyable and holding together nicely. Sort of dark for its age. Young fruit. Rather amazing for its age to show this way.

    October 8, 2015 - This wine is a remarkable value in todays market. It is a pleasure to drink, still remarkable youthfull at 60. This is 5th bottle consumed from a 10 bottle parcel purchased last year in anticipation of this being the year we both celebrate turning 60, there has been virtually no bottle variation. I didn't have much experience with Rioja's but this seemed like a great opportunity to have some fun and expand my wine horizons and it certainly has been that. I have enjoyed sharing each bottle with different friends and family, all have enjoyed it and all were shocked when I revealed that it was a 60 year old Rioja.

    September 20, 2015 - Took a while to open, but then came a long nicely after an hour in the open bottle. This is a very nice wine with lots of depth. Hard to place it as a 60+ year old
