What can you tell us about this bottle?  Where did you get it? How was it stored?  How much are you looking to get?  Was it in a fire?

Ahhh good question about the fire Doc. Hadn’t thought of that.

I have a different question-

Where was the bottle stored when the label became charred?

Also for future reference- it is always helpful to post of a picture of a bottle standing up rather than laying down so we can see the fill of the bottle.

The bottle is full. It’s original label. I got it from a friend as a gift. Her uncle brought back cases in the 50’s from Europe. I’ll post a pic of it standing up.

That would be helpful, but most of WineDrMike's questions remain.

Was it stored next to a large hearth from a nobleman's castle back in Europe?

Perchance this may be Lord pak Hendra?

Poor KHart.  This thread has been damn funny, but I think it's time to do you a kindness.  The wine is not worth anything.   The last Wine Spectator review was from 1991.  The wine was given 82 points and was noted to be on its way out.  

Here's some sane advice:

Stand the bottle up for 3-4 days.   Open it very gingerly (Ah-so opener recommended).  Pour a little.  Take a sip.  If it's drinkable then enjoy it.  The odds are slim- poor vintage, way over date, terrible condition bottle probably without good storage.  It's worth nothing but the sentimental value. 

After you're done throw the bottle back into the fire from whence it came!  And stop feeding the jackals, they've already turned on you (funny group of jackals though)
