Quite ripe and concentrated, yet balanced.

I think my expectations were too high as this disappointed. Maybe it needed more air, only a 30 minute decant, but seemed more Napa Cab than French Bordeaux. Very fruit forward with dark cherries and wood elements. More tannic than I would have expected as well. Those who know a lot mire about wine liked it much more. Guess it just wasn’t my style.
