Agree with Motz on this one. Its always fun to compare with so many other reviewers. This felt disappointing to me relative to the 2009 vintage and to my expectations. Certainly a good wine when compared to all possible wines at this price point, so not a problem on the QPR level. But, not really that much of interest in the tasting. This also seemed, to me, to be very mild at this point on the tannins and acidity. I can't imagine that this will evolve much more. Relatively flat and mild taste that is pleasant, but not overly exciting. Maybe best as a food pairing wine. This didn't shift much with decanting time or over the following days.
The wine looks violet colored. The legs are slow. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry and red currant. It tastes like blackberry. The body is medium/full. The wine has satin-like texture. The wine finishes long.
