Needed a good decant, but then opened up nicely. A bit of reduction blew off and funk became fruit and secondary flavors. Touch of baking spice and nice subtle oak. Red fruit and plums on teh body. The wine smoothed out and the full body rolled into a long finish that while interesting was much more restrained than the mide palate. PDQ93
