Allowing for a quick 15 min breather will help the initial sharp edges smooth out. Even w/out a decanter this is still great. Intense aromas of dark fruit and red raspberry, earth, & caramel-vanilla. Initial taste is un-ripe red fruit with a bit of acidity, but not so much as to affect the overall smoothness. Initial flavor is followed by a “Whoa, what is that?” Tobacco, mocha, herbs, earth? It has some fun complexity that morphed the longer it decanted. Nice, long finish makes for an enjoyable evening.

This is a really nice little blend. Nothing serious but such an easy drinking wine that made an ordinary night above average.
