Decanted this wine for two hours before serving with Filet on the patio. Initially, it was very tannic but it opened up very well after decanting. A wonderful wine with dinner, showing cassis and plums, with smooth tannins and an excellent finish.
Bursting with big, bright fruit on the nose. Mouthwatering and filled with strawberry and vanilla, but not very complex and almost a bit too jammy on the palate. The finish was long, but likely aided by the higher alcohol content. Somewhat underwhelming.
