Decanted it for about 90 minutes before consuming. It has decent mid-palate fruit. The finish starts out great but dies very quickly which is the primary reason for the lower rating. Very smooth wine and probably still has a few yrs left.
Drank last night and no notes. Decanted for about an an hour. Same concentrated, black and blue berry flavors as prior bottles. Medium-to-fully body with a smooth, lush texture, nice balance and very good concentration. It is a bit one-dimensional as it is dominated by all the ripe fruit, but it was very enjoyable.
The alcohol smell was quite pronounced on first opening. Took two hours after decanting to become enjoyable - deep black fruits, not overly tannic, good acidity. Taste change. Just not my type of wine at this point.
