Powerhouse Merlot. Tons of minerality and dense tannic structure. Primary fruit is a bit buried by tobacco, spicebox and chocolate but that is not wholly a bad thing. There is lots of character and cellarability here.

Dark fruits, very giving right now. Filled out in the glass over the course of dinner. Sustained well. Not terribly complex but pleasing enough.
Enjoyed over dinner at the Harvard Club in NYC where the fare as earnest as the dining hall is grand.

3.4. Excellent Bordeaux, wonderful nose after it has had some time to breathe. Lovely complex flavor and good aftertaste. Somewhat pricey for a 2015, on sale for$28.49, regularly $34.99.

It took an hour for the wine to open but it in the end it was a deep, muscular, slightly tannic, brambled fruit. .
