Monday, November 12, 2012 - 13.5%a.b.v. Drank over two nights, with and without food. This bottle made three distinct transitions: initially it was dominated by fresh strawberries and raspberries - lots of big lush fruit, not much structure. After a few hours of air it turned into a boozy, sloppy, flabby mess. I vacu-vin'ed it and came back the next night to a third transformation: balance, structure and a nice backpalate of minerality and secondary notes. First night it was a great stand-alone bottle (at first, before it went bonkers), the second night it was a great food wine. Either way, it seems like it's ready to go.
