Tasted six months after first accessing by Coravin, this was perfectly preserved, with consistent notes. The fruit is ripe and sweet, without being over the top; the tannin doesn't seem to take over the way it did when last tasted though. Perfectly enjoyable, but I do palpably feel that while I still enjoy this style of wine once in a while, it's an increasingly rare craving that I have.
This seems very young still, with some prominent french oak on the nose and palate and boisterous young fruit throughout. Very good depth and concentration. Unfortunately, this did not last very long with the crowd I was with so it didn't get a chance to evolve much with air. Still, I think this has the makeup to improve for years to come, maybe 5 or 10 years or more.
Starts to show well after about a 4 hour decant. More Merlot oriented at this point. Savory, herb flavors yield a subtle, complex wine. Tannins are sweet and tame. Probably can go a bit longer though I am not sure you'll see much improvement.
