Decanted this for 5 hours. There is no sign of any age on the color. Still retains that fresh lively dark stone fruit on the nose. A slight creaminess at first quickly steps aside as the vibrant black cherries, tar, moderate tannins, and acidity take over in the mouth. As it transitions to the finish cracked white pepper and graphite appear, as does even more tannins. That youthful oak and vanilla back when it was new has totally integrated now and no longer protrudes. The very long and full finish goes on for what seems like minutes. This drinks incredibly well at the moment, yet is still so primary and youthful as it approaches its 10 year anniversary. Hard to put this one down and this bottle won't last long, that's for sure. A killer Douro wine that has a long life ahead of it.
