Second WOTN by my estimation......decanted 18 hours and it was not enough, a 92 then....21 hours+ seemed to bring out a whole different creamy goodness. Deep, dark fruit, healthy tannins that receded quite a bit by hour 20. Great berry fruit goodness, quality vines.....so good. This has a richness to it, but it takes quite a bit of time, like 21 hours minimum to get there. It really rounded into shape. A 94. The wine deepens and becomes more complex. Quite smooth at that point...punches above its weight given the quality of the fruit and the winemaking.

    So excited to see the evolution in this wine over the years.
