Popped and slow oxed for six hours before dinner. This one got Better and better over eight hours suggesting a very bright future. Very similar impression to DECATURWIEDUDE. Elegant and sappy and gulpable. Drink now of over the next twenty years.
Gah, what an elegant and beautiful showing. Nose shows flowers, cigar box, and wet leaves. Almost a Burgundian nose. Medium weight, soft, supple mouth-feel. Sweet red fruit. Almost sappy, with a wiry, fresh acidity. Integrated and mature, it feels regal and sophisticated, from the nose to the finish. A joy.
An very elegant medium body wine. Nice brick color. The tannins are super soft with a very silky texture. Flavors of plum, cassis, cigar box, cedar, and cinnamon. Lovely wine. Ready to drink now, at its peak. Would pay a lot more for a similar quality wine if from Bordeaux or Burgundy.
