Decanted for 3 hours. More one dimensional than other vintages that I have had of this wine, but is drinking nicely now. There are several other entry level CDP's from this vintage that I prefer over this one.
At first I thought this was weak, thin, and metallic. A little fruit showing. Some heat at 80 minutes after opening. At 3 hours, this was improving. If you're going to drink this now, I'd decant. A friend of mine really enjoyed this, but it wasn't the CdP I was expecting. Then again, at this price, I shouldn't complain. On Day 2, there was some bitterness. I'd cellar this bottle for a while. We drank this with NY deli ie corned beef during Shiva. My overall impression - disappointment.
