This was served blind from magnum. I was surprised how tannic it was for a 1959. I was thinking more like 1966. Anyway, it showed lots of minty, blackberry and spice character on the nose and palate. It was full-bodied with a long fruity, and almost chewy finish. This has a long life ahead of it. Interestingly, I left some in my glass and two hours later during the dinner the tannins had softened a lot. 94 points.
