Nose of chocolate, cedar and blackberry. Fresh tannins could wait longer before drink.

Raspberry, BlackBerry, and Tobacco notes on the nose. The 2012 was still very young and after 3 hours of decanting it has opened up slightly - definitely not drinkable right now. Best to save for a few more years to refine the young tannins. It was very light, slighty velvety/silky, and did not have a long finish. Highly acidic and strong tannins with notes of blueberry, strawberry, cedar, currant, and plum. It was not a bad margaux for the price and value, but best to store in the cellar for a few more years.
