I had this wine with a tomato-cumin-based mild curried braised beef, and it was absolutely fabulous. The fruit and brightness burst out after the food compared to before the food, and the deep lingering aftertaste was up to the competition with the curry. But even before the curry, the flavour lingered in a very smooth and rich way. That aftertaste surprised me given the relative lightness of the wine liquid itself. And this was drinking it without formal decanting (I always use an Italian "dosa" to aerate as I pour). I routinely drink a bottle of wine over 3-4 days, with air evacuation between pours, and I predict that this wine will just keep getting better for the next few days, based on my experience with this method.
