Took an hour to really open up and begin to express itself. Black licorice, plum, dark fruit that balances out the heat. Nice earth notes come through mid palate. I really enjoyed this

I'm not sure I've had my way with it yet, 35 minutes in. It may need another 30 or so to be perfect. On the nose I get all the ripe melons and blackberries. I the mouth the tannins are there but nicely balanced with a certain vine-y (can we make vineaceous as word?) tobacco essence that pulls out the mouth juices quickly as the tannins dry them up. But there is a freshness interlaced with dried plums overlaying it all. It is exotic and rustic, old-school and new wave all in one.

Speaks mainly to Syrah, reminiscent of a warm vintage St. Joseph, as well as a sanguine character akin to Bandol. The only suggestion of Cab is a hint of pyrazine. Very nice, carries its alcohol well.

Deep and well structured. Still tight but aeration and decanting helped open up the red and black berry.

Interesting blend here. Strained and decanted. Mellow black fruits with long finish.
