Any recent thoughts on the 94 of this wine?
Patrick, I haven't any mid 90's ESJ's but I wouldn't be afraid of them provided they have been cool stored. I opened a 2003 ESJ W-F syrah last week, I must say that the tannins were about all resolved and it through a fair amount of sediment, but the fruit was hanging on, plus it had developed a bit of a bloody meat thing on second day. Come to think of it, I might have 2-3 more of them. I do think they need drinking up before too long.
