I must admit that when I first had this wine, shortly after its uncorking, I found it insipid with overwhelming scents of tobacco and smoke that was downright off-putting. This was as my wife as 39.5 weeks pregnant with our first child and, thinking this could be my last night of freedom, I actually corked the wine to open a different bottle. Upon revisiting this bottle a day later what followed could only be described as magical. True complexity with earthy tannins and an almost necessity to go back for a second glass. Do yourself a favour and decant this wine for a similar experience.
