It may be drinkable, if it hasn't turned to vinegar it will at most be an oxidized dry wine.

Will be trying it tonight!


Had to get a new siphon hose, the one I had was disgusting. (Sat on basement ground for a decade haha)

I will let you all know how it tastes tonight or tomorrow!

Thanks for all the replies guys.
