|Comment||Thank you Antonio for your valued time and thought. I, not being the delicate wine bouquet aroma type guy, wouldn't have a clue. Well, maybe, this quite elaborate bottle design holding the wine, is in a pair, the other a Christian Brothers screw on lid Chateau La Salle, same time period, same basic cheap good wine probably gone bad, lol. I have learned from you, the time to drink it, is as soon as you get it, not to risk it being lost in a garage, the poor grapes. Brian|
