Not quite what I was expecting I was pleasantly surprised but it needed 70minutes of air to show its stuff and got better from there

the last bottle I had must have been compromised this bottle was great and a very pleasant surprise. A ton of fruit and a lot of character for a 2nd tier older wine.

very harsh right out of the bottle but after an hour in the decanter a whole other story. Needs lots of air and is going to just get better with time.

I don't recall if I tasted it when it was younger or not but my assumption is it is past its time.

needs at least 5 more years it may be a surprise after that, If you drink it now it needs an hour or so of air.
