Like Buehler’s 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet (also recommended here), this wine needs time to open with air. Its energy is immediately apparent in a sweet hive of mineral tannins. Air brings out its shape, its chewy fruit-skin tannins turning gentle and allowing the wine to buzz with honeyed richness, refreshed by acidity. Decant it for corned beef—especially the crispy bits along the edges.
