Double decanted a double magnum about 90 minutes ago. Cork was extracted without incident
Red purple in colour. Lovely powerful nose of blackcurrant, a hint of eucalypt, and tobacco (maybe menthol). Flooding palate of milk chocolate, red berries and fine dusty tannins which support rather than compete with the fruit.
A lot of everything in this wine, but not unbalanced. It is worth the 10 year wait. Hopefully my guests will find it equally attractive.
