This was decanted for a few hours prior to drinking. Deep ruby in color. The nose has cherries, sour cherries, raspberries, slight earthy funk. On the palate, this has big red fruits. Light tannins. Very well balance. Mostly cherries with underlying earth. Long finish. This is very concentrated. It needs at least ten years and closer to twenty to hit peak. It will work well with roasted fowl. Lots of upside on the score with some patience.
