1st glass poured without decanting.
The color is dark ruby with a slightly pinkish rim (quite surprising since i found some already orange rim in the previous bottle)
There's a hint of cherry and cassis, that quickly mutes on a dark underground (licorice) and notable spices. The mouth is big but disjointed.
...
After 2 hours of decanting:
The aromas of cherry, cassis, blackberry harmoniously combine with dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is big and smooth, starts slowly, first setting the dark chocolate backround then the fruit emerges and intensifies into a spicy explosion. The finish leaves a long echo, on the cassis and spices.
A fascinating wine, love how this evolves, every glass is a bit different.

Looking forward to your notes.
For completeness, after 3-4 hours the wine still gained in complexity and showed much more directly (not the slow build up of aromas) than 2 hours earlier. You'll tell me how to name all those complex aromas, mpls, i'm not very good at describing red wines.
