"I rushed a little with this one. I was late for dinner at some relatives and didn't have enough time to allow for proper decanting. The nose was closed at first but then did start to slowly open up in the glass, gently releasing dark fruits aromas with some hints of vanilla and sweet spice. Still plenty of fruit on the palate but both the tannin and acidity certainly still required some time to balance out. It is drinking ok now, especially if you can give it a good 4 hour decant, but I really think this wine will reward those who are patient with it in the cellar."
