This was such an interesting wine. Popped and poured and initially it was quite bold and spicy with the right balance and fruit and tannins. With air, the wine evolved in a way I had not experienced before. The body and spiced tamed a bit, but a while later the flavors became a bit bolder once again. My experience is that a wine typically mellows and remains that way, but this was something unique for me. I will buy this again, but allow it to sit for a few years, or at least decant it for a couple of hours if temptation gets the better of me.
