No rim, no bricking. Garnet red. A bit muted, this needs air. The palate doesn't seem fully developed to me. Tannins are still rough around the edges. The flavors however are already tertiary. Iron, game, blood. I think this will come around within a year or two with good storage. Dusty, mid-length finish.
With browning on the rim, high quality balsamic vinegar flavor takes the lead over other components such as cooked cherries, thanksgiving turkey, rusty nails, and roasted herbs. While this tastes aged, it still has some structure left, and it feels fairly full in the mouth. The level of complexity here is dazzling, and the balance is outstanding. I’m not sure if this would benefit from further aging though, and I am glad that I opened this bottle. 13% alc.
