This was uninamously bad. Taste changed over the course of a 3 hr decant, but not for the better. Started out with mushroom funk - prune punch. Almost like an Oregon Pinot, hybridized and on steroids. Evolved into bitter dark chocolate, tannic and acidic. It had an amaro feel for a while. Then finally into flab. It was never pleasant or integrated.
