Super dark fruit profile. Oak is definitely present. Like my Grenache a little more light on its feet, and with some acid. Obviously a quality wine, but not made in the style that hits me where it should. On day three took on some curious umami-soy-liquid aminos on the nose. Slightly oxidized, but actually showed some real depth and complexity. Maybe this is just a lay down for 10 kind of wine.

Needs to go a few more years. Decant a lot. If decanted it's brilliant. Loosen it up.

An hour decant worked wonders here. Really nice and earthy. Don't drink much old world wine but this may push me in that direction.
