May 18, 2013 - Not decanted but probably should have been... was pretty tight aromatically and on the palate initially, and I don't think it opened fully before we finished it.. dark fruits, nice acidity, a little bit of earthyness on the palate. A little meaty as well. Very balaned, not a big CA wine by any means despite being 14.9%. Good, but not great, but I suspect with a few hours in a decanter this may have blossomed a bit better.2,862 views
