1970 Borges and Irmao

Post by benread » 17:14 Sun 05 Oct 2008

Part of the 30th September 2008 offline at TCP.

This was decanted about 20 hours ahead of consumption. It was a pale ruby colour and I seem to recall saying at the time it felt like it "danced down my throat"! There was a lot of very fine sediment despite decanting being through a coffee filter. It probably would have benefitted from a second decanting.

Most interesting was the lead tag around its neck - somewhat corroded but clearly marked 1970 but not in any way branded.

A very enjoyable wine.

Without seeing the bottle described above, I assume it is the same tag as on the below link:
