Garnet color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Only throwing a little bit of sediment that was easy decanted off. Absolutely stunning nose of tobacco, black berries, black cherries, flowers, a hint of leather, a bit of melted black licorice and on and on. Palate was a bit tight and singular at first but kept opening up over the next two hours to finally become very expressive of black berries, black cherries, a hint of black raspberries and a dash of plum on the medium to long finish. Medium to bright acidity, integrated tannins, full bodied. Drink or hold. If opening now decant for sediment about 30 minutes to an hour before serving to get the best showing out of this lovely wine.
