We had it fairly chilled. Needs some diligent decanting as there is a prodigious amount of sediment. This wine had a fair amount of new oak on it at fermentation and elevage, so I was expecting that oak to still be an overwhelming mask on the wine. Not at all. There is definitely the presence of oak and a higher alcohol level than what we produce today, but there is still savory finesse in this wine--particularly in the mouthfeel.

So much joy! Wondrously & immensely intriguing #wine with loads of white pepper, cinnamon, violets, & crushed phrygana on nose with palate embracing waves of textural bliss.
