Nose has juiced red cherries in stainless steel tank, dried grape vine, ripe black cherry, ripe blackberry, dry potting soil with trailing alcohol (13% ABV, seems more to us).

Palate has tannic cherry, ripe black currant, dried blackberry and steely notes. Still showing somewhat aggressive tannins, likely looking for another 10+Y in bottle or more extensive decanting time. We have noticed some mellowing of the more outlier traits in the past hour.

Decanted 4H.

Drinking ok but could use some more time in the bottle for the secondary flavors to emerge more.
