Definitely drinking window is now, very approachable within 30 minutes. Deep, musty, earth with some modest red cherry flavors, although somewhat muted fruit notes. A slight funkiness never blows off, giving it a true old world characterization. A tad bit of cork or is that Burgundian earthiness?
Opened 3-4 hours befored drinking. Dark garnet. Muted nose. Very concentrated, medium bodied, soft and velvety texture. Dark cherry, forest floor and some finely balanced acidity, medium + finish. Tannins very fine and completely integrated. Will develop more complexity but a lovely drink now.
Very solid. Tasted after this had been open for approx. 24 hours. Nice and pure. Raspberry, darker fruit. Good concentration. Some secondary development. Smoky. Good concentration bolstered by acidity leading to good finish. I do not see this having depth and concentration to last for decades but this is drinking well now and should continue to do so for years to come.
