this was outstanding and the first bottle of a case. After reading reviews, I let the wine open for an hour and it still was a bit closed, but a pleasing Bordeaux. After a few hours, the high alcohol settled into a rich, long lasting balanced fruit that was outstanding and closer to a Napa blend.
Needed a 1 hour decant to open up. Some sediment in bottle. Color showed signs of age. This wine underperformed. Nose of black licorice, cedar, forest floor, and kirsch. Good texture, but a bit astringent. Just lacked a certain deliciousness that you'd expect from a wine at this price point.
