This needed a Long decant. first nite was decanted only 30 minutes and it was sour. 2nd nite it got one hour more and was better. 3rd nite another 30 minutes and the description from acohen is spot on. Score reflects finish on last nite.

Opened and gave a short one hour decant..hungry and thirsty after full day of hurricane Dorian prep...1st nite was tannic and a bit harsh...score reflects tonites excellent showing...maybe we are more relaxed as storm stays offshore or maybe it opened up after more air time in the bottle as we cooked dinner...IMO give this a lot of air and it will reward you; 1st of 4.

WOW. Liquid raisins, plums & figs from sundried grapes ...bottled May 2017. Bottle # 437 of 825. Unique to say the least. Sweet and smooth so One does not even notice the 17% ETOH. Opened and pursuant to this lists advice kept in frig vacuum sealed for many weeks as this is purely for dessert sipping Did not lose one iota of taste. Shared at a group dinner and everyone was awed. Well worth the price of admission.
