Lovely wine that needs an hour's breathing time in a decanter to fully open. Just beginning to go to garnet, it is maturing nicely. Still plenty of red and black fruit with some emerging secondary and tertiary aromas of tobacco, forest floor and cedar. Lovely medium plus finish

Big blend! Back end strong. Fluid and strong. Gets better as you let it fly.

Lacked fruit musty and thin upon opening and then softened and opened up after an hour.

Lovely from the beginning to finish, new undertones just keep coming with extra time. Thanks for sharing Neil!
