this bottle was a journey.

opened at 620pm. tasted thin, old and dead. not corked, but watery. bricking and bland.

at 8pm, some fruit showed up and has the color turned a little purple with some floral notes.

at 945pm - medium bodied, fruity, with nice tannins, blueberry and granite notes.

just took the last sip at 10:15pm. a very nice bordeaux.

well done.

Decanted for 2 hours. Pronounced rich, lush, mildly sweet blueberries with a strong nose of vanilla. Deeply concentrated. Velvety, elegant mouthfeel with beautifully balanced tannins. Rich and opulent. In a great drinking window now but could easily go another 5+ years.
