Popped, decanted and followed for two and a half hours. At first, after 30 minutes of air, it was a nice, balanced and pleasant if not spectacular Cabernet. After two and a half hours of air, it is spectacular. The red fruits are coming out of hiding, the wine is opening up, and the smooth feel is finishing with some nice back end spice. The ABV is 14.9% but I would have guessed much less. I got this in trade back in 2006 when a group of people on mail order lists got together to trade their extras. I don't remember what I traded for this, but I'm glad I got this.
