To decant or not to decant this is the question! 2012 Napa. Too good to drink daily but not a grand Sunday bottle for the father-in-law either..... or so I thought. I opened the bottle and had an immediate glass. Lovely. I then let it breath for another 40mins whilst supper was made. With breathing it became very very nice indeed. Smooth, not dry, low in tanning aftertaste. Going to say rosemary and marzipan (and trying not to sound like I'm making this up - it really does!)
We ate pink duck and avocado salad and it was as good a combination I can remember. I bought 4 bottles from my merchant and I'll take time to decant at next drinking. Some wines just won't wait but I'm learning some need a little time to show their true colours! Who doesn't like to find out something new?!
