Didn’t decant this time, unlike last time, and that was the right call! This bottle is singing - so nice and deep black and red fruit. All coming together.

Nice wine but probably better a few years ago. Was worried it would be too over extracted or jammy or oaky or hot but it was none of those - perhaps due to age and the 2 hour decant. Overall slightly one dimensional but still good fruit. Finish lacked.

Drinking perfectly. The tannins are alive and well integrated with the fruit. Hard to pick any one particular descriptor out aside from delightful. Quintessential CdP.
