This poor orphan turned up yesterday in the trunk of my 90-year-old mom's car, where I had apparently left it as much as a year ago after a wine-shopping trip while she was having her weekly hair appointment. There was no leakage around the capsule, but the cork was wet clear through; wasn't optimistic that it was still drinkable. However, poured it tonight anyway to accompany oak-grilled burgers and hoped for the best, and Eureka! Still good! Lots of black pepper and blackberries on the nose and palate, and a nice strong finish. Alcohol is 13.5%, and there were 190 cases produced. Believe it was about $10, but since I lost it before entering it into the database, price and source are unknown.

Good thing she only drove it on the two cold, rainy days they had last year in so. Texas. Don't you love those Love those air-conditioned garages? [img][/img] WW
