Saturday, May 11, 2013 - Decanted, sampled over 3.5 hours. Closed in the first hour. It is borderline approachable after 2-3 hours of breathing, with food (Beef stew 'peposo'). Still very dusty texture! Drank alongside the 2004 (the 2007 got extra 30 min breathing time). 3/4 guests preferred the more mature 2004. Both vintages need more time. Once the dust settles this could be a very good wine. It is more balanced on the second evening. It is just a baby; give it extra 4-7 years.
BTW, the cork was 1/3 soaked. I was wondering if this one will have a shorter life as a result of this. I imagine it was standing on the supermarket shelf for a few months.
