A red-rust color, with aromas of cooked fig, dates, iron, herbs, and cocoa powder, this bottle appeared to be in pretty good shape after 56 years. Still showing some tannin on the palate, it provided flavors of leather, iron, smoked meats, and some red fruit still hanging around. Surprisingly, there was still a lot of acidity to hold everything together, and showed the staying power of Grenache.
