Rachel Tien's double full moon dinner (Pool House, Grand Hyatt): from methuselah. as one would expect from such large format, completely shut to begin with. couldn't detect anything from the nose. after a couple of hours, becoming sweeter with notes of spice and black fruits. overall still pretty tight and unyielding.
Very nice typical DRC aromas. Somewhat closed and angular initially, but opened up and smoothed out with time in the glass. Good acidity. Tannins starting to round out and dark fruits present. I think this wine would benefit from some additional aging.
