Drank over 3 days with vacuum seal and refrigerated. It has the body to go that far.
Black cherry, oak notes and profuse but not tough tannins. By day three, tannins settled down but so did the fruit forward nature of the wine. Comes across on day 3 with some asparagus on the nose too and chewy drying tannins and chocolate covered raisins with charred wood.
Remember it being somewhat disjointed on day 2. Therefore, it either needs a vigorous decant or another 2 more years in the cellar.
PnP. Nose of black cherry and loads of toasty oak. Medium palate with more black cherry, blackberry and a long finish with more toasty oak. Pretty noticeable tannins give it good structure and suggest this could develop into something really nice in 5 years. For right now, though, it's a bit over at $30.
