Its richness and complexity become evident with aeration. I would say at least 1 hour.

Drinking very well and easily punching above its weight class. Rich and decadent without overly gripping tannins. 3-5 years of peak performance ahead.

Took a while to express itself but remains a bit thin. Hoping it improves and opens more with further cellaring.
