Improved more with decanting. Mouthfeel started on the lighter side but developed quite nicely and followed with blackberry

Really nice Bordeaux blend. Graphite, cigar box, and pencil shavings. Tannins are fully resolved. This thing is ready to drink now.

2007 began decanting last evening for 6-hours, poured back into bottle. On the nose the wine is showing red fruit hint of pencil lead, cedar box. Palate is a little dusty, & this Yountville AVA not Rutherford! Coats the mouth with red fruit tannins are integrating nicely, but still need time. Great Juice!

My only correct guess in the blind tasting. I love this wine and really enjoyed it. The consensus at the table was good but not great. I found the fruit to lost a bit of its purity than I remember form last few bottles.

Needs several hours to really open up but just a beautiful wine. I would let these rest another 5+ yrs
