Dark dense red with a hint of orange at the edge. Decanted. At 30 min. began to open. At 60-90 min. aromas were complex and layered with a peppered, roasted note. Palate was generous, but just a little hot. Overall very good.
Still shows fruit and acidity. In my view having had two bottles, this wine never really showed over the course of its life. It sat in the middle of the class room never brave enough to raise his/her hand. Moved on to college where it shunned the sciences and majored in business. Thought about graduate school but instead joined a bank. Will probably die with a few good friends and a nice obituary (just never great or really good).
Blood, meat, iron, bacon, ripe fruit, funk... All of the above, but not yet in harmony. Big, intense and disjointed flavours. Really interesting and unique. Hope it all comes together 4 or 5 years from now.
