Trust Rating: 99
Tasted On: 05/07/2010
Opened and decanted for 4 hours. Nose was relatively mild -- vanilla, a hint of tobacco, and some kind of anise/licorice. The nose got better over time. By +4 hours the wine began to open up and showing more distinctive vanillan, Concord grape, and black raspberry. Fruit and wood just exploded in the mouth on the first sip. Gobs of vanilla, pencil lead,and sweet plums. By +6 hours the wine was really singing. Finish was a little too tannic, yet clearly something special. I might suggest waiting another couple of years before popping another. Either way, definitely decant.
