This was a great bottle of wine. I decanted for about 45 minutes. It could have used a little more time...The nose was soft with vintage Silver Oak aromas but I was initially concerned because the fruit was subdued. It was just tight. It continued to opened up nicely in the decanter and slowly started blossoming in the glass. An hour and a half after opening, this wine was beautifully smooth and tasty. I remember sampling a bottle when it was first released. It has shed the adolescent façade of youth and aged into a very pleasant wine.
