Pool Boy posted a topic in Beer, Wine, and CocktailsThe other thread where foie gras and Sauternes and so on were being discussed made me think about the oldest wines I have tasted. A 1970 vintage port (Dow's?) that was amazing (had it in maybe 2003-2005 time range). A wino buddy offered to share a 1971 Petrus with my wife and I - it was pretty eye opening. Tasted in maybe 2003-2004. Other wino buddies have shared some gems, mainly from 1990 onward, but some interesting 1970s and 1980s Napa Cabs as well. Most of these tasted in the 2005-2010 time period). I think the oldest wine I have in my cellar, at the moment, is the 1993 Diznokyos Tokaji Aszu (I think it is either the 5 or 6 Puttonyos). I have tasted it maybe 4 or 5 times and it is amazing. When I bought them maybe 15 or so years ago, they were of a very pale honey color. Now, I think I have two bottles left, are much darker. One is approaching the color of buckwheat honey. I am still wondering if and when I might pull the trigger for a birth year wine for myself and my wife. But I have lots more important things to spend money on (travel, dining out, haha), so it may never happen.
