We decantered this wine after an initial taste showed it to be a little heavy on the tannins and the fruit to be a little closed off. Half an hour in the decanter saw the wine open up. This is a deep wine with a rich black currant nose and initial pallette. The tannins kick in after the initial burst of fruit and are silky and balance the fruit very well. Subtle oak and a note of cedar wood complete the picture with the long finish capping off this wonderful wine experience. Drinking well now, but will continue to develop over the next few years.
