I’ve thought reasonably well of a couple Antaño wines before, so I happily bought this wine. It’s also pretty good, but be sure to drink it up right away, preferably in one night.
In contrast to my usual, “this wine is so much better if you wait intolerably long,” here I say pour and drink up. If it lasts in a decanter for about 1:45, the fruit does get darker and more tarry, but it’s quite tasty right away. It gives tangy, earthy, flavors of plum, blackberry, hibiscus tea, tar, and cherry, with strong caramel / raisin. Unfortunately, it also has a slight bit of that tang that says the wine is getting too old. The fruit is nicely rich and ripe, and body smooth and reasonably full, and there is a nice aged character to it. I decanted this wine off a decent amount of sediment, but the dregs were also quite tasty, so I conclude decanting, like airing, is unnecessary for this wine.
The next day, the saved single-glass screwcap bottle of wine showed the over-the-hill flavor much more strongly, and the wine was distinctly less pleasant. So, if you’re going to open the bottle and drink the whole thing, I could easily give this wine a Thumbs Up. However, its being a little too old makes me give it Drinkable.
