Friday, November 23, 2012 - I was surprised how young and unevolved this bottle seemed based on other reviews. Dominated by oak on the nose and palate with just a hint of clove and spice upon opening. It took a good 6 hours of air for the oak to calm down. Plenty of fruit left so I am hoping this will balance out. I'll try another bottle in 5 years or so. 93 pts.
Probably 95 or 96 pts 24 hours later based on one remaining glass that finally smoothed out. Should be really nice in 5-10 years.
