I have had an unopened tall bottle of this wine ever since I met my wife.  I think an old boyfriend gave to her.  I have attached a photo of the label and it indicates its a 1971 on the neck of the bottle.

I dont plan on opening and drinking it, but wonder if it has any value before I just give it away.  I couldnt find any info on it on the internet.

Thanks for the time.

Hi Todd

I don't have great news for you.  These bottles were never intended to age--they were merchandising display for restaurants, and the wine inside was pretty simple and cheap.  And it hasn't got any better with age.  WHile the bottle still has some charm, the wine inside has been dead for some time.

Sorry, but I don't think it has any value on the market.
