Still tightly wound, a firm grip of black fruits, coffee, built on fruit tannins rather than wood

Beautiful red and dark fruit, violets, earth, subtle spice and great freshness on the palate. Didn't decant.

Very very very tight. Maybe it’s that particular bottle and the weather but I was surprised by it.
The nose is intoxicating, beautiful classic northern Syrah. Violet, smoke, meaty.
Palate is shut down, starts to open up after 5h in decanter. Lots of structure, elegant fruit (mix of red and blue) with tannins getting softer with air.
Needs more time!
