Hi nc and welcome to the board. Here is acorrect answer 1) How was this bottle stored.2) Was it moved or was this the original storage. 3) Is the cork intact and still firmly in the bottle. I knew Rodney Strong, an ex Broadwayproducer turned gentleman farmer. If all parameters are positive this could be a wonderful drinking experience. Not worth a lot of money because of the uncertainties. Get you better half open, pour, and pray. Best wishes, WW
