I am investing in a few cases of 20+y/o Semillons, Cab Franc, and Zins and I have a few questions.
How fragile are these wines? The whites I am not so concerned about but the reds, do they need to settle before drinking after a vigorous ride from the Santa Cruz Hills? The have been stored cork side down.
I was advised to open the reds a day before drinking, would that be just open bottle or decanting?
Should i be concerned about small crystals on the cork of the whites?
Thanx all and Happy and healthy New Year to Everyone!
