The Antaño 2009 Crianza (what is a Crianza?) was pretty good, if a little too old, so I thought I’d try this one, which probably wouldn’t be. It wasn’t too old and if anything, might still be too young.
After a few hours in a decanter, the wine showed tangy, earthy, cherry, plum, less ripe boysenberry, and gentle wood. However, it never seemed to really air and smooth out. I left about a glass’ worth in the covered decanter overnight. The next day, it was richer and more forward, but still didn’t seem to even out. I suspect that, if I had used my usual method of saving wine (stoppered or screw-capped with very little air), the wine would have been pretty good the next day. Did anyone have any better experiences with this wine?
