First bottle corked. Second has a 4 cm fill and confirms that the first bottle is off. Light brownish tawny color with amber rims. Translucent and old looking in the bowl. In the nose it offers cherries, some hickory wood, and earthy spice. With several hours of air this gets a little rough as the acidity and structure overwhelm what fruit remains. Still, a fun bottle and age of wine to compare everything else with. BDay dinner 6/12.

Phenomenal juice. No heat. Just entering drinking window, plenty of life ahead.

Didnt need a decant. Initial notes of dark ripe fruit and bramble, hints of leather. As it opened, brett came around to give spices and cloves to the black cherry. Nice acidity, very lovely tannins.

Difference of opinion at the table: one taster remarked at the youth of this wine; personally, I think it is past peak. Go figure...
