Goddamn, this is good, seriously good. Ethereal scents of inkberry, cranberry, cassis, loam, vitamins. A truly fresh and engaging bouquet. A bit grapey still, but with incipient savory notes, and round yet tangy profile. Light to medium bodied yet intense and long, and some dry tannins remain on the finish. This is one of the best vintages of this wine I've had, true to the house style while eschewing any flaws. Drinkable now, and over the next decade. Tasted from 375 ml.
Decanted for probably 90 minutes and I think that was too long. The nose was very light and hard to detect. Color was nice light purple with a fair amount of sediment. Well balanced flavor. I liked it.
