The cork was dry and disintegrated, so this was decanted to filter out cork fragments and for sediment.
This is still drinking nicely. No significant bricking, but it's drinking like a mature wine, with integrated tannins still ample enough to provide structure. Flavors are integrated, too, with black fruit supported by leafy, cedary notes. Shows nice balance thought the finish. Drink in the near term, it won't improve, but should be ok for a couple years.
This bottle drank well. Dense color with bright rim. Pleasing aroma, a bit hot on the finish, but flavors before then nice with full fruit and some acidity to lend a bit of freshness. Still not my preferred style, but have had a lot less pleasing bottles of this style.
