Gave this 3 hrs in the decanter, by which point it was open for business. As usual with EMH wines, this bottle was all about balance and a sense of finesse. The mature red fruit, at age 10, was an equal partner with the rounded tannins and supporting acidity that kept the package together and contributed to the long, clean finish. No tertiary notes just yet. This still appears to have several years of fine drinking ahead.

Beautiful wine. Fresh raspberries and cherries and a touch of mocha. Rich and dense with a silky smooth finish.
