Dark garnet in the glass with dark fruit (dark plum and blackberry) and a little vanilla on the nose and palate. Disjointed, not smooth and residual heat in the mouth. Not sure what to do, but I think I'll wait awhile before drinking the other two bottles. Definitely open up and decant a couple of hours before drinking ... hopefully it'll open up. There's potential in the fruit there.

Though not apparent on drinking, the alcohol did sem on high side in hindsight. Thought it was really good and outdrank its price point.
