This thing needs a major decant (I've read some pretty poor reviews on this wine and most noted that they dcanted for 2-4 hours). In my case, knowing this, I tried it after it had sat half finished in a bottle for 8 hours. Only then was it coming back into shape. It will never be a blow your socks off Bordeaux but for the price that I got this at ($20), it is a serviceable bottle. Talk about tight....no analogies, as I'm sure WW would have so poetically proposed.

"a new pair of shoes", "IKs' wallet", "Drews' back-swing", "Hotsies retirement schedule", or perhaps "KCs' leash that Judy has on hims neck". Is them what you be talking 'bout?

Yup.... [Image: smile.gif] Maybe not quite as tight as IK's wallet but maybe a bit looser than KS's leash.. At least Judy lets him breath.... [Image: smile.gif]

Uh..... say what??? I'll have you know I'm quite happy with the relationship Judy and I have - mostly.

and it's not my backswing that's tight....it's at the 19th hole settling up my losses that the tightness takes hold [Image: biggrin.gif]

D@mn, this thing shows no sign of loosening up!!! needed 5 hours in the glass to start to relax a bit... Still tight!

Sounds like Engineer might have been a little "tight" too, double-posting like that.

Pulled a bottle of this from a friend's cellar to see how things were going. Still buttoned up and not showing much of anything until a big decant. No change in notes.
