Something of a savory element to the dark-cherry and stone fruit mixture. Aerated to decanter one hour, but that was not nearly enough as this showed best on the last glass, some 4 hours in. Even then, this was just beginning to unfold. Give this several more years of rest, or serious aeration if opening anytime soon; Nothing wow about it at this point. Medium-bodied(+), with the slightest EtOH signature still attached. Absent the elegance I've come to look for. Thru 2023
Taste: Medium bodied with medium acidity and chewy tannins. The structure is very youthful and bordering on overwhelming. Beneath the structure lie dark red cherries, red berries, spices, ash, and some earth tones.
Overall: This is very young and elegant. It's showing off a lot to like and can certainly improve.
