Well balanced with good fruit. Tons of sediment, so a filter and decant are necessary. This is starting to settle down and show nicely, but could use a little more time; however, it did not have much evolution nor staying power throughout the evening, so maybe it's ready to go now. We'll wait another couple months before opening the next bottle.
