When we first tasted it, it seemed a little closed. It had wonderful fruit, but the balance was off - not enough acid. Over the next half hour, though, it developed into an exquisite wine. The color was bright ruby without a hint of oxidation. The nose was full of fresh strawberries with a hint of leather initially, followed by earthy tones and caramel. The wine developed the acid once it had sufficiently breathed bringing out the strong berry fruits, and complemented both the roast duck and herb-encrusted seared tuna equally well. It went through phases with eucalyptus and violets throughout the meal with only soft tannins. We saved enough for the cheese course as well (and glad we did). A memorable bottle of wine.
