I think this will be more enjoyable with food. So I paired it with rosemary crusted lamb chops. Yum! There is nothing subtle about this wine and I like it. If you understand what you are opening, you should find this enjoyable. There are big flavors of blueberry, spices, and some red meat. For a bottle with 16% alcohol, it is impressively light and drinkable. This is not your every night wine but it shouldn't be a one time wine either.
Upon opening and without decanting, this wine was just dessert. Really though, it struck me as brown sugar. The dessert aspect dissipated to some degree over 3 days, but the wine retained a refined complexity and mouthfeel.
