    2/1/20, 6:28 PM - Not sure how much air you gave this....but, I have been drinking Ch. Montelena Estate Cabs for almost 40 years, almost every vintage and they need to be decanted...every time. 2-3 hours if you can...5-6 in some vintages before they come into their own. It is amazing the difference in depth, texture and layers of flavor when you do. Good Luck!
    Cheers!
