    1/19/21, 10:23 AM - Nice note! Did you decant and if so how long? I had some in the 3-5 year timeframe and it was definitely not ready. Based on your review, I am looking forward to my next 13'.

    1/22/21, 8:43 AM - I decanted in bottle around 2 hours, but it’s getting better and better every hour. About 4 hours later, I finished it and it’s still stay strong. Maybe next time I’ll try to keep the wine till second day.
