Opened and decanted for about 2 hours and drank over the course of another hour. The one thing that stands out with this wine is the minerality. I really enjoyed it. Also, there was a ripe, dark red fruit profile, soft tannins and a good finish.
Very classic CDP. Lots of lavender, raspberry and dried thyme on the nose. Very textbook, very ageable. Med+body, medium acidity. Not fat or cumbersome and all on the palate. This dances (waltzes) along in a very capable manner.
Decanted 2 hours. Nose a tad shy at this point, with aromas of game and raspberry. Don't remember this being that shut down on the nose. Palate is more open with flavors of raspberry, plum, blackberry liquor and touch of iron on the 25 second finish. Wanted to give ur lower score for the nose but the palate makes up for it.
