About a decade ago, I bought a bottle of 1989 Chateau Musar Cab for a pretty silly reason. It was the year I graduated from high school and I wanted to have it for my 20 year reunion. I wasn't even really in to wine. Since then, it's endured three moves, a divorce where it was thrown out on the front lawn, and probably a couple of too hot summers in my garage.
I've finally become a bit of a wine connoisseur, and recently I was researching some of my growing collection, and I came across some reviews for the 89 Musar. Most said it was decent, but that it wouldn't be very good past 2003 or 2004. So last night I decided to give it a shot before it really went over. When I first sniffed it, I was worried. But it tasted absolutely fabulous. I'm terrible at descriptions, so that's the best I can provide. ;-).
Now I just need to find another bottle or three. Unfortunately, I bought it for $25.00 all those years ago. Now I see that most of them are $250+.
