Opened the 1995 tonight, it started with an incredible aroma of chocolate, tabacco and potentially mushroom-- really wonderful and complex. However, the initial sip was almost tasteless, the only hint of things to come was that at the tail end it gave up some flavor. Did not decant the bottle because I did not want to quickly tire the wine, and let it sit in the bottle for about an hour. It opened up incredibly, like a new wine... always smooth and mellow, but complementing the incredible aroma and provided a long delicious finish. Excellent wine. Just treat it with respect and let it air in the bottle for an hour. I believe it should be consumed soon, not sure how much life it's got left. It's like a fiesty 90 yr old teaching you about life. Could croak any minute. I have a couple more bottles and will probably drink in the next month.
