So it was a mistake to pop and pour this a couple nights ago. It was good but tannic and a little confused. Wife and I both enjoyed it but very average and hidden. Fast forward to tonight. Whoa! Softened very nicely and really pulled together. Beautiful wine that would have been best served by another 5 in the cellar....or maybe more. Red raspberry, cherry, plum, blackberry. Well balanced and enough tannin even on the third night. Outstanding, but I highly recommend a significant decanting.
Popped and poured. Upon opening at my brothers birthday, a nice nose that gives a good hint of the black fruit and cabernet that is coming your direction. Certainly a great blend that is smooth and easy to drink. Black fruit permeates the palate. A solid effort and my first bottle of half a case. Highly recommended.
