Default For the THT wine snobs

I just realized a had a couple of bottles of wine stored that have been around a while......think they are still good?

drink now? Keep aging? trash?/

One is a 97' Ravenswood Pickberry and the other is a 93' Terre D' Agala
These where a gift some time ago that I just totally forgot about.......been stored laying down, but not in a cellar....just inside

What you think?

...or used toilet paper if you want an oaky flavor.

As long as the cork stays wet and the temp is fairly constant you might be OK. Some wines age better than others. Several aren't getting any better and most likely turning to vinegar after 4 years. Pop one open and see. It will be good or you toss it.
