Served with filet mignon, crab cake, lobster tail and Panko fried shrimp... This wine was opened and decanted about an hour before dinner - the bouquet was fresh raspberries - open abottle of chambord - THAT was the nose!!! In the glass during dinner, the beautifully balanced oaking came through and made this a perfect choice for our dinner, although I wish I had a few more bottles to sample again in a few years!!!
Tasted after opening, and wine was tight and lacked refinement. But, two hours of air provided a nicely structured cab, with very nice hints of cherry. Tannins were soft and this magnum proved very drinkable for a modest dinner party, receiving much praise. Whew!
