I have had the 09 and the 10 a few times and just don't find them to be massive wines. Maybe consumed too quickly.
The last wine that I had that was better on the 4th day was a Schrader Beckstoffer To Kalon (pre 2010 vintage). I personally think you cannot pop and pour a Schrader...they just don't reveal anything and you end up wasting an exceptional bottle of wine.
I'll pop another Mascot this weekend and report back.
Had another bottle of the 2010 Mascot today. Same Eucalyptus / menthol nose to this wine. It's ok...nothing special. Would not buy again. Had a 2012 Merryvale cab after this that was much better.
