No idea why this is so cheap: probably a perception that it is getting over the hill. Anyhow - this wine is by far the best value on wine.com. Outstanding stuff and easily worth twice the bottle price (if not quite the supposed original)

Easily the best wine I've had for this price--would have guessed it was worth $25+. Everything is in agreement--now has major sediment making me think that maybe during the early years it wasn't nearly this balanced.

I bought this thinking at 9 bucks it would be a crap shoot. Would it be a $25 bottle? Well, no. The wine is past it's prime and one dimensional.

I bought 2 bottles.
