Good timing, I just drank it yesterday during belated Thanksgiving with my family. In full disclosure I have never tasted a mature bordaux before, but I really, really enjoyed it. It was interesting to see the color difference between a mature wine and a "new" wine. Seemed to have good acidity, fairly mild tannins at this point. Medium body. Somone, who is not a wine drinker, remarked that "it has so many different flavors!", which is always a good thing. I did not decant it and was away when someone polished off the bottle so I didn't get to see if there was any sediment or not.
