This definitely needed airing. Started off with an inviting aroma of bright fruits, old spice, oak and even some cured meat component. But the palate was lean and tart. It took quite a while - almost an hour in the glass (we were using small bowl glasses) to soften up and gain weight. Strong VR character coming through. Cherries, blueberries, nice mix of spice, some ferrous notes, some oak. Fairly complex though still very young and edgy. There was a slightly off-putting woody component that I did not really like. Hopefully with age it will round off and meld nicely with the other flavours. Needs at least 2-4 years for the flavor components to gain nuance and integrate.
