Wondered if this might be corked when I opened it, but let it sit in the decanter an hour to see what happened.

The initial funk blew off, and it's quite lovely right now. Very fragrant. Some of that PLL greenness (though not as much as I recall from another bottle last year), earth, leather, iodine and dark fruits; very polished and silken textured on the palate with lovely length. This is really good and I'm glad I have more.
