Ck70, decanted 06:30. Dark glorious red. Palate dominated red cherry, but starting to dry out. Now past prime; not at an altitude far below the peak, but clearly facing downhill.

Decanted 13 hours, 50% opacity, warm red. Smooth entry, gentle heat mid to late palate. Full mouthfeel, spicy with some dryness and bitterness.
