Fantastic nose of blueberry bushes and other dark fruits initially. Over time the nose faded to leather and then to raspberries and strawberries. Vibrant acidity and juicy red fruit on the palate throughout, still has plenty of time left.
Pleasant nose of licorice, dried leaves, and cherry. For the first 1.5 hours, the palate was bland, with some acidity but very little fruit or other flavors. After spending time in a decanter, the palate opened up with juicy sour cherries followed by a moderately tannic finish.
Popped and poured. Started well and got better in the glass over 2 hours. Strong roses and cassis on the nose. Palate had juicy dark fruit and good tannins. This is in a good place now and seems like it still has several years left
