Over the weekend we had dinner at The Anvil Club in East Dundee to celebrate my 30th birthday, and this bottle was perfect.
Decanted for about two hours before serving. The cork, while very soft, came out in one piece. Served in Riedel Sommelier Bordeaux glasses.
The color on this was fantastic, bright ruby, just barely turning clear at the rim. There is no way just looking at this wine one would think it was a '75. Aromas of violets and fresh-cut flowers fill the glass. There's an earthiness to it as well. Silky palate, loaded with red fruit. There are no harsh tannins, the wine is well balanced and has a very nice finish. 93 pts.
