Somehow not as good as the bottle I opened in June. It had a very alcoholic nose and taste. Not sure that is the right word but strong, I think one reviewer mentioned "rust" flavor. Maybe this needs long decant and breathing but I am not inclined to buy more- the drinking window is described as ending in 2014 and I think I see why. It lacked the body to underpin the otherwise overpowering flavor I just described.
Same comment as last time. This wine needs a long time to breathe in the decanter. It is very close to being past its best - at least that has been the case for the last couple of bottles. To begin with it seems to be lacking body in as much as it doesn't seem to be'together'. After about an hour or so, it starts to resolve and all the elements come together to show it as it should be - almost. This is not a big body, full mouth wine at this point, more a beautiful fine old wine.
