A friend opened this thing amongst the others and it was a treat. The wine not only was alive but kicking and we had to decant it to open it up. It stuck around for the entire 4 hour dinner, improving along the way. Super nose, obviously older wine but did not feel that old. Color was still garnet, some fruit remains but the second and tertiary notes were good, medium body and finish but a wonderful look into the 70's [img]/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Geez, PW, all three of my kids are older than you. Even worse, I think the Weener has grandkids your age.

If I remember correctly this had some Eisele juice in it. The 75 was over 90% Eisele and is still one of the 5 most memorable wines I've had the pleezure.......WW
