Very disappointed. Probably past its prime, but I was still expecting a lot more from this bottle. Lots of vegetable flavors with very little fruit. Leather became more apparent as the bottle breathed. Very muted tannins. Nicely acidic.
Decanted one hour. Some vegetal and plastic on the nose. Palate is black currant,black cherry, mixed with some greenness, leather,tobacco, cedar. Good acidity and tannic structure. The longer it was open the more old world earthy it got.
