The bottle did gain quite a bit of weight over the two hours of decanting. Cigar, dark coco, dark berries, and rather focused. Oak was not completely integrated yet and tannins are still a bit course but the mouthfeel is very elegant. Medium + body and nice long length, this wine is not over done, nicely balanced and good complexity, though perhaps not quite with the other vintages of this wine.
