Bottle from my cellar, opened at Pizzaioli. Upon pouring into decanter, an amazing bright red color, as if a wine from the 2000's. Tasted after 1 hour in decanter and continuously over the next 4 hours. Nose is deep rich iron, animal blood, preserved fruit, and acid. Palate is incredible, very fresh and integrated with plenty of strawberry and raspberry, hint of wood. Finish is clean and abrupt. Could have gone another 5-10 years.
Bottle from my cellar, opened at CUT Las Vegas. Decanted for about 1 hour, tasted over 2-1/2 hours. Pours a deep ruby. Nose is of slight barnyard funk, cherry, raspberry compote. On palate, great acidity, subdued tannin with flavors of bright red fruit, and a bit of menthol/spice. A very nice wine, but perhaps too much acidity to stand up to rich fare.
