Give this some time to breathe. Enjoyed this, but won't pop another of this vintage for at least a year. Rough on the PnP, but opens nicely with enough time.
Ripping acidity, chewy mouth-drying tannins, and delicious! Enough acidity to balance (perhaps "and then some") the fruit. Enough oak to say to me "Toro", but not so much to make it the "oak monster". Excellent QPR.
