Just as the wine has developed and matured but still insists on holding onto its youthful characteristics, so do we. Who says that aging is bad?!
I'm guessing we bought the wine at Vintages in 1987 or 1988, paying $29.70 and put it in the basement (those were in the days when we spent more than $10 on a bottle of wine...). We were a little nervous when we opened the bottle, but were pleased and surprised that it still had quite a lot of structure and spices on the nose and in the mouth.
The label suffered a little over the years.

To create the sepia version, I altered the colour again by adding 20R, 5G and -10B)sepia . black and white . colour
Oh oh... not for cats!
