This is a great GSM Blend from Paso Robles. Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly, but good after an hour of airtime. Tannins show up after 2 hours in the decanter.
This 15 years old is good by itself or with food. Feels more like a 10 to 15 year old, good quality, Right Bank Bordeaux.
