Decanted for 3 hours (but sneak peak right after decanting is enticing...). Minimal fine sediment in the bottle. Surprising aged coloring, brick red body with browning rim.
It's show time! This is delivering the goods right now. This starts with aromas of sweet cherries and tannins. A touch of camphor keeps it complex. Flavors of ripe, full berries and fruits with a dusting of earth. This all wraps up with a medium length, minimally tannic finish. Did the label say Napa?!! This really comes off as new world versus old so I can imagine plently of doubters and haters on this wine. But... though different, this is wonderful. 92 pts.
