Were afraid we let this go too long, so decanted for over an hour. Was a slight brown tinge, but the nose was excellent with rich dark berry and spice. The palate notes were black cherry and a slight vanilla with a bit more alcohol than expected. Really nice still, but wish we would have had it a couple of years ago.
Good wine, developing wel; good drinking now and for some years yet. Smooth as silk mouth feel. Attractive palate of plum and menthol. A little alcohol heat indicating its 14.5% ABV is not quite carried to perfection, but a good drop none the less.
