Decanted for two hours and then left in bottle for about 8 more hours and it still kept developing in the glass. Earthiness came through but wasn't harmonious at first but as the night progressed it became nicer and nicer. Maybe it should be opened up the night before to really see it at its true form.

Plush with intense aromas of lavender, sandalwood, and black cherry. Full bodied with a firm structure and notes of balsamic, blackberries, black olives and a touch of bacon fat. Volumous finish with power, balance and layers of texture.
