Whilst I had no initial inclination to decant this, it was a little tight after being opened for a short while, so i ignored (or was that forgot??!) my own advice from January and decanted it. I tasted it again after only half an hour and realised this wine is now coming towards the end of it’s drinking window.
It’s still drinking well however, don’t get me wrong. Inhaling distinct vanilla just as it reaches the mouth, full and round, but it has that tell-tale port like kick on the finish – along with a lot of spice.
Drink-up, appreciate the absolute bargain that it still is, and look forward to the 2010…
