Very old wine!

We opened a bottle of Uiterwyk Cabernet Sauvignon from 1974 this evening! For a 36 year old wine it was remarkably well preserved - still a purple-red colour. It's taste was hard to describe - complex yet very smooth! Kudo's to the wine maker - D. De Waal - a great wine, even 36 years after it was bottled! Kind of weird drinking a bottle of wine as old as I am!
