Got a taste of this some five days post-opening. Any fruit on the nose appeared to have faded, leaving behind mushroomy and leathery tones. But the palate was quite vibrant, sporting juicy red berries, peppery notes, some minerality, and a menthol-like finish. There's a touch of discernable VA, whether it's because it's been open for so long or an inherent wine character, I don't know. Regardless, it wasn't much of a distraction. An enjoyable glass but I definitely would like to drink this from a fresher bottle next time.
