Shockingly old tasting. Maderized fruit. I’m guessing poorly stored.

Birthday wine, part one. Showing well and the structure is much more subtle...in a very good spot. Rose petal and tar.

Great stuff! I can't believe I am saying this, yet this great wine is too elegant for me.

Gorgeous. Light and Livy on its feet but still so young. Tannins fairly aggressive.

Gave it a 3 hour decant but was still pretty tight. Around 4 or so hours after opening it began to loosen. Very aromatic and floral from the start. Lots of complexity. Velvety. In a good place but just needs air to show.
