Bottled in 1985, this wine (Probably from Q. de la Rosa) has spent more time in the bottle than it did in the barrel, and should be the juice of the sixties.

Normal stoppered bottle with lead foil, stopper not decayed.

Poured from the bottle (which has been in the fridge)

Beautful golden amber colour, rich, fragrant and perfectly smooth - I'd wager the years in bottle have smoothed it's last rough edges. Long slightly nutty aftertaste - yum..

- IGNORE those who say these bottles don't improve!
