Needs to breathe! Was about to rate it low and then just retasted on day 3 and it’s delicious!

I am a big fan of French wines but this seemed a bit astringent at first. It got a little bit better at the end of my meal so perhaps day two will follow suit? Not as robust as I like to drink but it is 60% merlot.. picked up at World Market for about $10 on sale from $24.
.....so, day 2. Was much better. I should/will let it breath next time around. Will keep an eye out for the next sale.

Color of dark ruby with hazy purple on the rim. Nose of mocha, peppery spice, abuse, rustic graphite, and a bit salty note. Taste of powerful tannins, herby and grassy notes, a bit chocolate , and sour cherries, make me believe it has potential to age. Aftertaste of some hotness from the alcohol, and graphite, but not much more. Is is missing the pillar of aftertaste, maybe the wine is still young? After breathing for half an hour, the fruit notes show up and balance the spicy notes. It also adds the sweetness, like dates and cherry jam in the aftertaste. I kept revising the score from 9.0 to 9.2 to 9.4 after 30 minutes/1 hour of breathing.
