This was outstanding, and probably peak for my taste in Napa Cabs. Took about an hour to fully blossom in the glass: very soft tannins on front end, really balanced full mouth in the middle, and long pleasing finish. Excellent.
Decanted for 2.5 hours. Very smooth and well integrated. Only minimal tannins noticeable. Paired well with a NY strip. Fruit was pretty muted - wondering if it did not need that long of a decant at this point. Did not improve from first sip after the 2.5 hour decant. Nonetheless, it was a very good bottle.
