Signs of leakage. Cork soft and wet throughout, but came out smoothly in one piece.
Tiny amount of sediment.

Decant +3:
Pale light red-brown in colour, like tea. Almost pink at the rim.
Nose of strawberries and marzipan.
On the palette again strawberries, black cherries and some orangepeel.
A bit too alcoholic to my taste, though.

Decant +24:
Remarkably less alcoholic than on the previous day.
On the nose the marzipan has disappeared and hint of tomato has appeared.
Lovely creamy texture! Blackberry and sweet raspberry on the palette.
Marmelade on the reasonably long aftertaste.
Much nicer than on day one.
No tannins whatsoever.
