Could it benefit? I'm sure, it's still primary, but certainly enjoyable now. Very nice sweet aromatic nose. If you have several, no reason not to enjoy one now. I popped and poured.
An excellent 2003 Beaucastel at City Cellar, where they have 50% of a bottle of wine over $75 on Mondays. $155 on the wine list. Definitely drinkable after decanting, but still very young. No fruit bomb but no secondary characterics flagrant. Old World astringence but bright fruit and acidity in balance. I'm guessing this will be way better in 5 or even 10 years.
Just one more sip.

I know it's my own fault and I should know better (I said this over and over again to myself as I requested a glass of pinot from the waiter). It had been a long day and really felt like having a glass...
I feel your pain xhoser. I used to travel a lot for work and when I was in the mood for a drink after work, I usually went with beer or if it was a really bad day, the hard stuff!
To celebrate my eldest sons offer for a faculty position as an assistant professor, we opened a 1990 Dom Perignon and a 2005 Smith-Haut-Lafite Blanc. It's been a great day!
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
Mazel Tov Dok!
Show me a good loser, I'll show you a loser - Vince Lombardi.

1999 Domaine de la Solitude Cuvée Barberini Chateauneuf du Pape - drinking very well at dinner with my bride celebrating our 14th year of marriage.
Yes, I got the first one labeled "First wine". BTW, you woke me from my slumber as I am currently in Italy. No worries since you are sending pictures of Raveneaux.
