Some reduction notes mutes the (dark) fruits but overall a very good wine for $25.
Despite Moulin-a-Vent’s generally being my favorite candidate for aging I would opt to drink this on the earlier side (2018-21).

Nice but just not quite as integrated as I was hoping for. Lots of deep red / black fruit on the nose. Mouth filling and on cork pop quite chewy. Definitely needs a couple hour decant at this stage. With some time and air this is quite nice but the finish is still just a touch disjointed.

Tight and tannic, but it brightens up on the finish so I may be underrating it.
