I would call this fully resolved and mature at this point. Medium bodied, but rich and with some sense of sweetness. Deep flavored with the complexity and flavor profile that is so unique to Quntarelli. I don't see much upside in further aging.
Had no chance to decant. PnP. Notes taken 4 hours after opening. Dark purple opaque color. Flowery strawberry nose. Full-bodied red fruit on the palate with good acids; tannins long gone. Long pleasing aftertaste. Probably should drink remaining bottles over next three years.
Great nose of plums, black cherries. tobacco, ceder, anise and violets. The tertiary notes were very present and after a decant the wine opened up considerably. The tannins have integrated very well to offer a wine at a great place. Drink up.
