1978 Torres Black Label Riserva, 100% CS. Solid color, faint bricking, American oak, great bottle sweetness, still showing great structure, a tad drying in finish, but still amazing. Last bottle from the 1970, 1971, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978 and 1982 stash of these wines I've consumed over the past 30 years. The first fine Spanish Cab I ever remember.
