Note written 3.5 hours after opening. Deep ruby color. Light sediment. Aromas of white mushroom and plum sauce. Stylish entry. This opens with with a whack of oak and vanilla with a ripe mid-palate core of dark forest fruit. A tendril of sulfur. Drying finish. Lightly tannic. Medium body. Well balanced. Enjoy or hold. With food or without. We had this with a cheese tray, including a fine aged Manchego and a Wisconsin cracked black pepper cheese with grilled bread basket. Paired well. 92
PNP which was mistake. Big, full throttle, a lot in there, still tannic, needs either a day to breathe or more years or both. Everything in there that needs to be- this should be a really rewarding keep in a while. I see a lot of CT notes saying drink now and so perhaps a decant will help a lot, but I think this has years to get better and better
