Only fault in this bottle was the cork. The top half broke apart using my normal bar side opener. Will need to remember this next time and use a waiter's tool. Decanted 30 minutes. Beautiful ruby color. Tremendous nose and loads of black fruit across the palate. Balanced, firm tannins, well structured, well made. Probably peaking right now. Delicious. Served with Italian marinaded grilled chicken. My wife really enjoyed it.
