This wine is already near peak when released, although it may age for another several years. Aging is an imprecise art; excessive aging could lead to a negative effect. Ideally, try some every year and enjoy the wine's journey. Keep at a uniform temperature - 55 degrees is best. It is perfectly normal for a well aged wine to develop minor sediment in the bottle and on the cork surface.
