This is really becoming a beautiful wine. Very well made, great fruit and wonderful length. I have 3 more in the cellar and looking forward to them. This really needs at least 1hr in the decanter to show it's beauty.
Pop and pour. This seemed quite a bit more approachable than the 2007 version to begin, then tightened right up. Much more elegant. This breathes up some moss and cherry bowl. Smooth. Dark cherry and oak spice. Acidic finish. 87
Upon opening, this was quite disappointing; astringent and unyielding. Nothing worthwhile. I wondered whether it was affected. However on the 2nd day it was transformed into a lively, racey and utterly compelling wine, with so much intensity and verve.
