Cadence Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Bel Canto 2002

Member Review by RPerro:

Decanted 1 hour. Nose of spicy blueberry, oak, vanilla and pencil lead, following to the palate. This wine needed more decant time to fully integrate the oak monster, so I left it alone for awhile. The fruit really started to sing after about 3 hours, when I was headed for bed. Vacuum sealed and will taste again on day 2. Day 2: Much more integrated, but still lots of oak. Tasty, but definitely needs a couple more years.
