Sunday, August 4, 2013 - WOTN at a wine dinner with friends. Brought as a backup bottle in case we decided to open one extra one, and at the end of the evening, we did, so this was popped and poured. Based on my experience last night, this really doesn't need a decant... very elegant right out of the bottle, with mellow tannins and beautiful Bordeaux-like characteristics: dark fruit, cedar, lead pencil... So sorry this was my only bottle... I'd love to have a few more bottles of this, and if I did, I'd find as many upcoming special occasions as I could to justify opening them, because I think this wine is absolutely ready to drink...
