This wine has crossed its peak. After a 1-hr decant, the red fruits were still prominent, and 2 hours in, it had improved somewhat, but never reached its potential. Complexity no longer there. Drink up now.
Wow I was pleasantly surprised when I went down to my cellar to pull a nice Cab for Sunday night that this was a 2005 instead of a 2007 as I had entered into the CT database. This was tagged as an 07 and I was glad it had a few more years under its belt. I splash decanted this and it was a wonderful wine. It had that classic Napa profile: cassis, cedar, eucalyptus with dark fruits. Drinking just perfect right now and we killed this bottle before dinner.
