This wine continues to evolve in bottle. All of the odd top notes that were so polarizing on release are long gone. Left behind is a polished, long lasting, smooth beauty that has a subtle Italian flair. Decanted overnight through happenstance, with no negative outcomes. PDQ93
Tasted single blind. I'm not an expert on flaws, but it seemed to me to be volatile acidity. High toned nose tilting to nail polish. Just too much on the palate with whiskey notes. I've had this before when it was just fine and more closed than anything.
Decanted for three hours. Should have been longer. The bottle was still closed, however the potential was obvious. I still have two bottles, so next time I'll be more patient and hopefully enjoy its full beauty.
