Needs to be decanted. Popped and poured and it was very hot upon the opening. Settled down after an hour or so, but I was not as impressed with it as I was a year ago. Might be a bit closed down; good aroma, but the palate is relatively short and has some fruit, but not a ton. If I had more, I would wait a year or so and see what happens with this wine.
Decanted for 30 minutes. Medium-bodied wine that is medium ruby in color. On the nose, red berry fruit, licorice, and a touch of smoke. On the palate, black raspberries and citrus. Bright acidity present here (maybe a little too much), along with some lightly chalky tannins and a long 30+ second finish. Perfectly pleasant wine, but not especially complex.
