Left to breathe in the bottle for about 2 hours. Toasty oak and some dark fruit aromas on the nose. Medium bodied with some dark cherry and cassis and more toasty oak. Noticeable falloff in intensity on the mid palate leading to a short finish with soft tannins. This just didn't seem to have enough fruit and came across as thin and watery. Don't hold out much hope for my other bottles. Very disappointing effort from this producer and a very poor QPR.
Quite tannic and, more importantly, forgettable even after a multi-hour decant. Even after 24 and 48 hours of decanting, although tannins softened, the wine was tart and uninspiring. Disappointing at this price point. Bummed.
