Still evolving. Big red purple fruit but The Merlot softens it up. Still a bit sharp on the finish. Drinking too young.

Decanted for 2 hours. Lush berries, soft tannins and well structured.

Explosive nose of black fruit and black olive. Secondary scent of bitter chocolate. Unripe plum and cedar. Firm tannins I’m hoping will soften as it opens.
