Popped with my family. My wife and her twin brother-in-law were born in 76, so my reputation is resting on Phelps! The appearance is exquisite. Visibly, it is showing only slight signs of age, with the wine at the quarter shoulder. On the nose, I detect prunes, cinnamon, tree bark and saddle leather. On the palette, the wine is superbly balanced and harmonious. Tannins are, of course, integrated, but the stature of the wine is still so graceful and refined. Flavors of caramel with a hint of cedar wood and truffles . The finish is sweet and utterly consistent. For its age, this is an outstanding example. Purchased from Benchmark. PS - My reputation is still intact
