Nose of leather, cherry very traditional, with drying tannins, cherry and a bit of leather in the palate. Tannin are so drying that this devolves quickly into a dry heap. Air, time? I'm not sure anything will help this wine, certainly overpriced at $40 and I'd go ahead, decant the shit out of it and drink it soon with food, particulary something to cut that tannin.
