Drank over a two day period. First day opened bottle a let breathe a couple of hours but didn't decant. Should have because it remained tight until 2nd day when it really showed it's fruit and power. 91 based on second day and my laziness in not decanting 1st day.
Decanted for about an hour and drank over the next 2.5 hrs. Dark color and fruit (blackberry & currants), medium to full body, medium acidity, some oak, and a fairly long finish of about 35 secs. What hurt my score for this wine was the quite noticeable alcohol and heat on the finish. Kept it out of balance for me even with some pretty high fruit levels.
