Big, bold, dark wine. Ready to drink, but not a 'Lady's wine'. Oak and toast is recongnizable but good integrated. Will have a nice future. BTW: I like the big heavy bottle. Gives you the feeling of a luxury product. :-)
Decanted a couple hours and drank over another few. Wiff of heat at first, but it blew off quickly. Nice, big dark fruit aromas on the nose carried on to the palette as well. Just the right amount of oaky, toastiness. A bold wine, but just the right amount of finesse to keep it from being too big. You can definitely feel the Petite adding a bit of soft, lushness to it. Well integrated, dusty tannins. Drinking well right now.
