This was decanted for 2 hours prior to the first sip. In the decanter upon opening there was a wonderful nose of black juicy fruit. The CT window has this "finished" in 2016 and I don't buy that. This has at least 5 years left. It is not pop n pour now and it was better on day 2 than day 1. On the palate there was some herbs, blackberry, and good structure. Nicely balance wine.
Popped and poured. I'd recommend a short decant...initially, there was some prominent oak on the nose...that disappeared quickly. Blue fruit profile, well integrated tannins, creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.
