Drank over two days. A touch of medicinal/alcoholic heat, both on nose and palate, with noticeable acid, smooth tannins, and focused dry cherry fruit. Also picked up notes of walnut and anise. Not much change on day two. Definitely a food wine, and one that might benefit from a little time to smooth out some rough edges.
Needs time to open up, it is a bit tannic and closed at first. After about an hour of decanting , the wine opened up, the perception of the tannins fell away. There were predominant flavors of cherry. Best with food, not by itself.
