Delicious, but still very young and primary. Decanted for about 30 minutes, and consumed over about 3 hours with friends. Tight is a good word to describe it. I wish I'd say on this bottle for a few more years, because it will probably jump up a few points. I got black cherry, plum and vanilla on the nose. Hints of leather after a couple of hours. Tasted amazing, however the tannins still need some time to settle down. The last glass was the best. I'd hold for a couple of years, or give it a long decant. Or both. Great juice..ill be seacrchlng for another bottle.
Brought to restaurant for a celebration. Decanted for an hour. Deep purple color, subtle nose, dark fruits and mocha on palate. Had a long, long finish with tannins in check, which boded well when the ribeye came. Was superb alone, but better with the meal.
Purchased in restaurant. Was decanted but had difficulty opening up. Despite being 13 years old the wine was tight the entire time. At the end it started to give up some of it's tightness and gave hints of chocolate and tobacco but very subtle.
