Great wine, rich and full bodied, paired well with the ribs.

Opened this at 4pm for a party at 6:30. One taste and I knew I had not allowed enough time. Wound tight. Decanted/aerated 8 times over the next two hours and it worked. While, no where near it’s peak, it was enjoyable. Black fruit, black olive, smoked meat, dried herbs. Needs at least 5 more years in the cellar.

Catching up on my review backlog - the first of two opened this night and enjoyed with smoked ribs. Cut through the fat beautifully and had the dark fruit / leather notes without the alcohol burn that can sometimes be present in these young bottles.
