Normally prefer RSV to GE, but roles were reversed again today with this vintage as well as 2001. This wine seemed a bit clunkier than the GE, but I'm sure on its own would have been thrilled with it. Is it possible it just needs more time to come together? Or perhaps a bottle that wasn't ideally stored.
Good Wine, Good Steak (Tampa FL): Open and decanted close to an hour before serving, could have used more air. Spice start-to-finish with plenty of red berry aromas and flavors. Great balance and textures from the first sip to the end. Stunning aromatics kept expanding with more time in glass.
