I found this at a "dump the vintage sale" at 21.89/bottle, an excellent buy, even at my modest means I went back for four more.
I picked this up from a small wine shop in a wine club purchase. I agree that a few more years would make it better, but I found this to be pretty good if I let it breathe for awhile. The flavors really came out. Not a bad pickup for $20.00. I wonder what's up with that..
