My expectations on this wine were very high with RP's 99 rating. It's clear to me now what RP values and it doesn't really match my definition of perfection. This wine has powerful intesity, concentration, a great nose, but I found it to be too much. The word "hedonistic" comes to mind. It was decanted for a couple of hours. It's almost liqueur like, with high acidity, maybe hedonistic is the right term. I would rate it 92 points overall.
