Ok only the last three years, but still …
After writing a post yesterday about this gem of a wine by Equipo Navazos I was intrigued to see if the changes I imagined I remembered had any basis in fact. Now I can only read the notes, and it all sounds as I remembered it, but I realized there was one quality that was there before my very eyes: the colour.
And hey presto, due to the miracle of photography you have a collage of images from this very blog from August 2015 (at the top) to November 2018 (at the bottom) and I reckon the evidence is in my favour on this one – a definite yellowing/browning going on over time.
So you never know, there is a chance I am not imagining the other stuff. Comforting thought!

I have no doubt as to your assessment of Bota 34’s progression over the years in bottle. My current glass looks like the most recent in your photo. But goodness me, let’s not let anyone think this is not still just an immense, spectacular wine. It is just blowing me away at the moment. Tremendous.
Haha absolutely! Comparisons are odious and I am definitely guilty of a bit of over analysis at times. You should try the updated saca too
