I really liked this wine. Decanted for two hours and additional time in the glass and decantor, it improved all the way through. Even after decanting it had too much age in the bouquet, but with time the bouquet and the taste really improved. Strong cherry, boisenberry, and grape tastes on the palate. really well integrated tannins.
Wine was a little past its peak. Well intergrated, but the nose was quiet and it did not have the flavors that I expected given past bottles from this vintage. Long finish. Don't get me wrong, it was a wonderfule wine, it just should have been consumed a year or two sooner.
