My first experience with a 10 year old cab:I purchased several bottles of 1983 Pauillac from Chateau Mouton-Rothschild in 1986 ($36 a bottle). After enjoying one early and giving some of the others to special friends, I had saved the last one, intending to open it on the birth of my first child. This blessed event happened in June of 1993. I was somewhat anxious about the state of the wine, as I did not own a wine cellar, and had alternated storing the wine in a closet (which was adjacent to the a/c duct) in the summer, and in the farthest corner from any heating vents in the winter (living in SoCal, not much need for heat, although there is almost no such thing as insulation out here). Anyway, upon tasting it, I realized that what I had previously thought of as only so much hype (descriptions of the tasting of fine Bordeaux) was, in fact, only a feeble attempt to capture in words the rapture that followed.The skyrocketing prices of such wines coupled with the escalating costs of family life have conspired to prevent such extravagance from reoccurring. So now I'll make do with California cabs (last addition a 95 Peju).Kaigun Chusa
