As noted by vinodolphin, this needs air. Prior was Pnp and unimpressive, but this time I decanted the wine for 10 hours. Much better. If I had another bottle, I'd let it sit for at least another year or more.
Those who didn't like this didn't give it time. A real funk at opening on the nose but cleared and replaced by nice dark fruit 3 hours later. By the time we drank this after 4 hours, the fruit came through and it was smooth and delicious both with and without food. This is a great QPR. Those that drank it right out of the bottle without waiting and want to get rid of theirs, can send it to me.
