Decanted two hours,
NOSE: dark berries, fresh herbs (mint and bright tobacco), a whiff of mocha. Mild, but pretty darn good.
TASTE: lovely. Cocoa plus both savoury and baking herbs - not much fruit. Like a lighter and more elegant Rioja. 91.
EDIT: I see now that I tried this exact wine two years ago and didn’t like it at all. I presume the difference is the two years of age and the long decant. Maybe the last bottle was off also, who knows - or I was. Anyway, wow - what a difference! — 4 days ago
Substitute wine for our Piccolomini. Pretty good. — 3 years ago
In perfect form and magically delicious. Dark cherries and soft spice for days. Blackberries, plum. Dry top soil, crushed, dry rock, dry brush, sandalwood, withering red flowers, good acidity, nice evolution, integration and very good wire to wire finish that lasts two minutes.
$20- $25 on release if my memory hasn’t failed me. Another 3-5 years of good drinking. — 4 months ago
