Decanted for 30 mins. It was surprisingly European and delicious. After another hour or so, it began to pick up that sweetness that is more characteristic of Australian wines. If I had another, I would drink it soon and maybe with even less time in the decanter.

with Jason Heller at Bistro Jeanty (with a Coche Corton). Balanced and youthful. Great long finish. Bottle went all too quickly.

first sip was nice but then faded very quickly. Is it the bottle? Will have to try another one soon.
