This was perfect right now. Lush, well balanced. Dark fruits and chocolate, but structured.

1 hour decant (decent chunky/cloudy sediment). A majestic spartan crimson color with little signs of aging. On the nose: very aromatic with that sweet aged Napa perfume, red and black berries, cedar, smoke, slight minty menthol, wet earth, and slight creme brulee. Taste: Singing!!...classic Pink Floyd....Comfortably Numb with the ultimate guitar solo hitting mid palate (thank you David Gilmour!). Its smooth, dense, full body, mouth coating wine with rasberry, blackberry, mocha, crushed rock, pencil lead. A long vanilla mineral finish with some slightly grippy tannins.....will go another 10 years.

Cloudy, foggy brownish red.
Smell: not super floral. A tiny bit of green peppers.
Initial Taste is super intense. A bit bundled up. A bit dark and some dryness. Good fruit. But this isn’t as good as the last melbury I had right off the bat. Definitely was disappointed.
Initial taste is 9.1
