    2/1/20, 7:21 PM - Given the unknown provenance this comment maybe off, but in my experience Diamond Creek Cab’s especially from the 1970’s and 1980’s need a long time in the decanter even when they are older. I have seen 20+ year old bottles that are way better after 5-8 hours in a decanter! While I don’t think this vintage is the best example of DC RRC out there, it does still need the decanting. Cheers!
