wiscgrad nailed it, drinking well, slight acidity issue

It's main note for me was acidity. A little bit of pepper on the nose, as others have noted, but that's about it. Not terrible, but very lacking.

Coravin - came out tight, opened up in the glass. Great balance and flavor, excellent wine.

Pop and pour, very harsh off the first sip. Let it sit an hour, astringency remained. Used a VacuVin, came back to it two days later, and the astringency had mostly blown off.

Tasty enough, but I didn't quite get the same experience as others had with this wine.

    2/5/14, 3:30 PM - I don't believe this necessarily needs any more time, as I've found with most wines that an astringent flavor will stay for much longer than you hope to cellar it.

    I'd say it's good to drink now, but give it some time to breathe, maybe an hour or so, if you can wait. Maybe take a sip right off the opening, and see what you think. If it has that astringency (which others didn't seem to find) let if blow off first, you'll be rewarded. Otherwise, it may not need time to decant, as others have pointed out that it was great as a pop and pour.

    Either way, it's ready whenever you are!
