Opened with a steak. Unlike the last time i decanted it for 4 hours it was much better. Needs to be served a little on the cooler side as the alcohol level is quite high (16.1% i think as i measured it) but it is so concentrated it can handle that alcohol level with food and the acidity in the wine. A very special wine, will not please everyone but for me i like sometimes to drink a teeth staining wine with my steak...to each his own lol

A bruiser... oh so much concentration in this wine it is close to be like an amarone but with nice acidity to compensate. Entering a sweet spot of its drinking window...needs food but delicious
