Best 70 for the $$ ever even better than 70 Mayacama Cab...red berries buried under sous bois! Incredible - maybe an hour of pure pleasure :) better than nice massage!

Well structured and still quite vital. Color has a little brown on edge but the nose is still quite expensive and shows bottle complexity that only comes from cellar time. A joy to share...🍷🍷🍷

45 year old wine holding up well. Beautiful wine. Old barn wood, roasting coffee, stewed strawberry, elderberry, roasted meat, old Birkenstocks, dried cherry, my birth year. #bourdeaux #oldworldwine #1970 #hautmédoc #FWC #cabernetsauvignon

Floral aromatics with some notes of anise and currant. A little Brett on the palate- but integrated. Cherry cord on the finish with some beautiful tannins. Drink now.

Still dark magenta color with very little browning. Amazingly fresh and continues to improve in the glass over first hour upon pouring. Bouquet of dark fruit, earth, cedar, and faint baking spices. Medium bodied and well balanced flavors of cherry, plum, nice structure that become rounder with some toffee notes emerging after 20 mins. These 375s have been amazing over past two yrs. one left for seeing what happens in the next 5-10 yrs as an experiment. Hard to believe it will fall apart that fast after 50 yrs and still drinking well
