Bottle #3455 of 3800. Feel like an art collector.
So far, so good. Quite an evolving experience. It started with a musty, barnyard funk and has over 70 minutes tamed to soft, smoke. This is a big wine, checking in the ring at a hefty 15%. Would be interesting to cellar this guy for a couple of years.

Let me try to put some effort into this one. Only 40 minute decant, still running hot. Deep opaque purple. A nice evergreen/fir spice on the nose. Blueberry pie on the front palate, but no sugar remnant. Full-bodied. Really nice tannic structure at the end that doesn't pucker the lips. I tainted my buds a bit with a red pepper marinara sauce, so the I might be misinterpreting the the heat source.
