Slightly prickly tannins round the edges but definitely approachable...nice, mellow, smokysweet funk to the nose flowing seamlessly into the palate, where there is good concentration, good balance, and a long finish.
Taut and expressive, this was drinking well, but a little more time would probably mellow it nicely. Lots of tart fruit with lengthy mineral and tar flavors. Its structure made it great match for bolognese despite a bit of warmth. I'd happily drink this again.
