1996-itis, my ass. This bottle had every excuse to show premature oxidation: there was seepage under the capsule, and that familiar aroma of heavily oxidised wine filled the room as soon as I stripped off the capsule. The cork showed clear signs of having leaked. But I rinsed the bottle off, and the wine itself shows no signs of premature oxidation. other than perhaps somewhat premature maturity. This bottle may be peaking.

Lovely wine. Full bodied with just enough acid to maintain that light-on-its-feet mouthfeel. Flavors of lemon and minerals. Glad I have more.

Useful report, Lee. But for the "my ass" I was bracing for a disaster. I take it your remaining bottles don't have the same outward signs of a problem?

Actually, the remaining bottles are temporarily inaccessible. So I can't really say.

Good to see you here Lee. It's been a long time since that dinner in Minneapolis.
