Decanted for 24 hours. This is simply too young. Loads of teeth chattering acidity and ample tannins are showing up the fruit that's certainly there but lingering in the background. It's a gorgeous wine in the glass. Beautiful ruby color...but it's the bouquet that's just so fascinating. Burning diesel that was prominent the first several hours but became more integrated as time went on and allowed some very flashy, perfumed red fruit. I doubt this will ever be described as a powerful wine but I do believe it will eventually evolve into a very enjoyable, feminine Burgundy. Unless you want to commit infanticide, I would recommend not opening one of these for several years. My remaining bottle won't be touched until sometime after 2020.
Interesting nose of burning diesel oil and old oak, dark fruit and brown spice with a hint of herb. Not a huge finish. I but nice think it will need another year or two in the bottle to reach it's potential then it should be a nice, elegant burgundy.
