Treasures or Vinegar?

BigWoodenSpoon | Jan 18, 2009 12:10 PM

My best bud just gave me two older bottles of wine and was wondering if y'all had any ideas about the vintages, etc. No, I don't know how these have been stored, but probably not the greatest of conditions. However, the bottles seem to be in good shape, so who knows.

1976 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Pauillac: Appellation Pauillac Controlee
"Mis en Boteilles Au Chateau" across the top of the label over the picture of an old chateau with men working and women in perhaps Victorian garb looking on.

1974 J. Pedroncelli Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

So, would you drink them and if so, with what?
