Decanted 1 Hr. Light color with good bricking along the edges. Musty moldy earthy moss forest floor old barn nose. You'd think this wine was dead. Beautiful palate, strawberries, dill, faint oak but complimentary, tannins gone.
A few cork issues, but no impact on wine. Lighter color with some bricking. Decanted 90 min and needed 30 more to hit its stride. Black olive, oak, strawberry, hints of sour cherry. Tannins subsided. Acid integrated.
