Wow, this was truly amazing. Simply delicious and still easily within it's peak drinking window. Decanted. Drank over a 4 hour window. Silky, luscious, smooth. A brilliant permeating nose and an even lovelier multi-layered palate displaying an incredible variety of flavors. Fresh tasting, long finish. Great as a sipper and excellent with filet mignon.
Coravin'd a glass, pop and pour. Blue fruits filled the wine cellar as I poured this, bringing me back to earlier samplings of this wine. Heavy in sediment, I might decant just to avoid it, but otherwise would drink promptly. The heady perfumed aromas were wonderful, but the wine didn't live up to the nose IMO. Slightly backwards and shallow, even following this one glass over 3 hours as I did inventory in the Cellar. Drink up.
THis wine is still imposingly young. We decanted it for the entire course of our dinner and after about 2 hours it was just opening up and becoming incredible. I would hold another five years before opening this one.
