A bit harsher this time than I would have expected, given my prior experience with these wines. Decanted, and it smoothed out a bit. Lots of fruit but just a bit out of balance. Try again.

Amazing value, still. Berry and a hint of chocolate. Very well integrated and balanced. Fully developed, but showing no sign of fading. Down to the last three bottles of a wonderful case. Two days later finished the bottle (it was gassed). Flavors and aromas continued to evolve well. Hints of leather, pipe smoke, cedar, and a more distinctive cherry. Delicious.
