Pop and pour. Nice barnyard nose. Very nice red fruits and very smooth. The next time I open another bottle I will decant for 2 hours. This is the first time that I try this wine. I prefer the 2003.

Pop and pour. This brunello was delicious. I think that it would have benefited with a 1 hour decant.

I decanted for 2 hours. Tasty dark fruits. This was excellent with a wonderful long finish. This wine is getting better every time that I open a new bottle. After trying this tonight I decided to purchase my full allocation of the 2012 vintage. I am so glad that I still have 9 bottles left.

1 hour decant. This was delicious. Every year I think that this is one of the best QPR Napa Cabs that you can buy. Luckily I have 5 more bottles left.

I decanted for 2 hours. This is drinking really nice. It will definitely improve with age. I will let the remaining bottles that I have age for several years.

I decanted for 1 hour and it was drinking very nice. On day 2 it tasted even better. I purchased it on WTSO and it is a great QPR. It is drinking great right now. I think it will age well for several more years.

1 hour decant was not enough. I would recommend decanting for 3 hours. Blueberries and blackberries, very smooth, very enjoyable. This will improve in a few years. I agree with Rocknroller in that you should hold or heavily decant.

I decanted it for 4 hours. I can see why Mike Smith is such a popular winemaker. It was delicious and I am glad that I still have several bottles left. If you open one now I would recommend that you decant for 4 hours.

Decanted for 2 1/2 hours. This is a great QPR for $35.00. I have had this wine several times and it has been very consistent. Blueberries, cherry and oak. Full bodied and a long finish. This should cellar for many more years.
