We just shared a magnum of 1999 OMV with friends. It is still in the same beautiful place as I remember it last year at this time. 1998 is more developed. I remember wondering which would age longer. I had put my money on the 1998. I was wrong. 1999 gets the prize. 1998 is good, but there is no benefit in holding this longer. 1997 could go either way. 2000 has also gotten into a spot of ‘suspended animation’ where it is happy. I did not expect this to do so well due to its uncharacteristically high alcohol for us (over 15%), but it has. 2001–2003 are all in prime drinking shape. 2004 has just entered that stage.
