This was my Christmas treat. Gave it around 12 hours. It evidenced its fruit a little less fully than previous examples, but was, nevertheless, a luscious wine. It was pretty tannic with a strong finish. It held together well for Boxing Day and provided a good slurp on the third day. It is clearly not a wine in decline; it holds together nicely.

It will be interesting to see how this one develops, if at all, but I am not sure that I shall keep my remaiing bottles tucked too deeply away.
It may be drivel, but it's not meaningless.
