Decanted for three hours. Some slight bricking but really looking very good. A bit austere at first but then raspberries and black tea came through. Feminine. Elegant. Still pretty tannic despite it's age. Delicious with pan-seared duck on mushroom risotto. Kinda wish I had another bottle so I could try it again in 5 years. Drink or hold.
This bottle took a pretty long time to open up, and felt a bit chemical in the first 30-45 minutes of being awakened. That said, it complemented a meal of kohlrabi and radish salad and a tajarin ragu beautifully. Fairly dark, long finish. Will give the second bottle we have a good hour or two open, if not more.
