This is apparently available in the market and I would love to know the back story.  The 1973 has been reviewed a couple time here recently as well.  It has a Rose/pink/orange color to it, clear and bright.  The nose has apricots, butterscotch and caramel.  Viscous.  On the palate the apricots and butterscotch come thru.  Solid acidity.  Nice finish.  This is very nice and drinking well at age 49.  This would be a great birth year wine for anyone born in 1972.  It would work well with blue cheese or just in a glass by itself.
