Re: 1969 Martin Ray (Mt. Eden) Pinot Noir -- what to do?

Franklin's post reminds of of the '70 PN I put in with a vertical of Cronin Peter Martin Ray Vyd. PNs. The fruit was gone. It was hollow and incomplete on its own, but the structure and tertiary notes were there. Nothing "bad" about it, per se. With food it was glorious.
