Interesting wine. I spent the first 45 minutes wondering if this one had some kind of taint going on. And after four hours or so, probably found that it is a little bit of volatile acidity. However, after an hour it started settling down.
Didn't affect the palate. At an hour and a half, it started to show some wildflowers, black fruit, some herbs, some baking spice, but really quite subtle with a finish that was a little more acidic and out of balance vs. the fruit on the front and middle. White pepper finish. This is still a nice wine and IMO deserving of a 90. But I think the best years of this wine were about 1-2 years ago and probably should have popped the cork on this one then. — 5 months ago
