Decanting this was a mistake. Roughed up the wine and made it sour; aroma like body odor, taste all acidity (though cabernets are acidic).
Poured straight into glass, much better --
still youthful mulberry color,
fascinating, faintly prune-like -- lush and meaty smell and taste
tannins and acids cool and silky
