I believe Rob brought one to vinoevelo's the one time that was still half full and open a year. Still fine.
Have fun trying to reopen the bottle though as the dried sugar is worse than super glue!
That bottle was incredibly disappointing given the 100 points from Parker. Opened as a bottle of Sun-Maid raisins soaked in vodka. Seriously that was ALL it tasted like.
Vinoevelo did say that after a few weeks of it being open it blossomed into something all together better and nuanced, bitter walnut, layers of raisin, dried fig, candied peel etc...
Like fut says, this is something to have in a small cordial glass every few night over the course of a month or two and watch the changes.
With all that's been said above, my expectations are not high, but for $15, I like Rob & Fut's idea of following it over a month or two...and hope it doesn't get glued shut in the process.
