After one small glass of this wine, my opinion was this is amazing, so rich and full of flavour. Then tragedy, a glass fell out of our cupboard and broke the caraffe, and the rest of the wine was lost. In the spirit of getting back on the horse after falling off, we bought another bottle. It was very good, but just not quite as amazing. I don't know if different bottles vary that much, or we did not have a proper caraffe (any more). Maybe it really just needs more time to age.
