90 minute double decent. Lots of sediment. Deep, deep inky magenta color. Firm, drying tannins start to soften and nose opens up after 2.5+ hours. Nose of blueberries and violets earth and stony riverbed. Lively acid and plenty of fruit balances drying tannin on the relatively long finish. No drop-off second day. Drinking awesome now so long as you give it the respect it deserves in the decanter. Nice QPR.
Coming along nicely. Very dark. Some tannin still to resolve. A bit forward, but good mineral salts keep the finish from being too sweet. Drunk with lamb tonight, a really good match, with the tannin, fruit and fat interplay.
Extremely well made. Still taught. Needed 90 minutes to loosen up before giving up the goods. Restrained, dark fruit that gave way to drying tannins and a lengthy finish that left you wanting that next sip. i think this will get better in a few years but very approachable now.
