Very deep read/violet in the glass. Nose is very earthy--maybe a tad of mint and a tad of eucalyptus (sorry OZ). Very smoothe on the palate. Some cherry, but not terribly full bodied. No noticeable acid nor tannin. This has been in my cellar for about 25 years. There is anothef bottle, and I expect that I should drink it fairly quickly. Amendment 4/19/2014 -- The second bottle was very much over the hill. I suspect that even the first bottle was way past its peak -- if it ever had a peak. It may have been flat the day it was bottled.

Not as acid as the the Gruaud Larose 1975, but some yeasr younger. Almost same color as Gruaud Larose 1975. The cork was a bit spongey, probably from the upright position in the store where I bought it. ery interesting to taste.
