tannins still very present and years of life left but really good tonite with grilled lamb chops cherries on the front end and tannic earthiness on the back stood up thru a 3 nite drinking period decant or hold
Primary, somewhat reticent bouquet of traditional rose petals and tar, along with integrating oak. Tightly wound upon opening, even the tannins were restrained. After an hour of air it came alive; after four hours it became a monster of a wine, massively structured, dense, and brooding. Very young, with an significant upside. Recommend holding until 2018; drink through 2028-2030. 93-94.
