Decanted for one hour. Consumed over the next two hours. Big, lush fruits right off the start. The first hour of drinking was hot and disjointed. Some of the fruit and gaminess came through, but it was hard to get past the alcohol. The second hour it settled down a little bit with the heat subsiding allowing a little more enjoyment. The last sips I took after three hours of opening were the best. I think this will improve with time. The first impression was very good and the ingredients are there for an enjoyable wine, it just need time with air. I would decant for a few hours before drinking.
