    had this with a porterhouse steak. 18.08.2010 the first impression was a fine tight Knit burgundy opened up after 15-20 minutes to a fine silky cab, with slight vanilla flavours. after an hour the wine had turned and tasted a bit like a port wine..... comment: this vintage should probably have drunk already some years ago... interested in hearing other comments on same vintage
