Decanted for 3 hours and the wine was first of the evening. By far, the nicest wine out of twelve tastings. Long finish, with pleasant nose and bursting with flavor. Drinking nicely right now with no notice of age.
Decanted with aerator and let sit 45 minutes. This wine is simply amazing, hitting all the notes. Gorgeous lush fruit, smooth tannins and perfect acidity. Great mouth feel and long lingering finish. I was told at the winery that this wine may be peaking but I think not - has several years at this plateau. Bravo!
Excellent - popped and poured - was a bit tanic so next time will decant. In spite of that was a delight = amazing fruit and great structure. Has plenty of time to go but can be drank now as well with a decant.
