was expecting more - on initial pour there was a tart, acidic bite, which rounded out a bit over the next hour and two hours - wonderful nose, verging on elegant and left me optimistic about day 2 - but next day the tartness returned with a vengeance, to the point it was unpleasant. Didn't even finish the last glass. At this price point really hoping this is some sort of dumb phase and my remaining bottles get better with some time. Either that or I need to drink them quickly within the first hour or two. :)
Had this via a magnum with another couple. Decanted for an hour. This baby is ready to drink and is simply delicious! Great fruit, mouth feel and lingering finish. Tannins are supple but there is enough stuffing there to let this age another 10+ years.
