Really enjoyed this wine. Gave it a 2 hour decant before drinking. The nose was sweet and perfumed, like sniffing a cherry coke, to be honest. On the palate, very bright, red fruits came across along with a good helping of tannin. Drinking well now, but it has a lot of years left.
Tasted 2006 and 2001 vintages together. Similar flavor profile (dark fruits, herbal good complexity) but tannins are stronger and more muted flavors for 2006. Started to open up after 2 hours of air time with more fuller flavors and slight softening of tannins. If you can wait, keep this sleeping for another 3-4 years. If open today, air out for at least an hour.
