Popped and poured. Dark inky purple color. Smells of blackberry, tar, and licorice. Surprisingly acidic on the palate, but it’s balanced well with supple dark fruit (not a trace of blueberry though for me). Does not come across as overblown at all. Certainly a much more finesse-oriented effort than I thought. Very good, but certainly not mind blowing. Will follow over the next 24 hours to determine the improvement/evolution. Should be interesting as I think this is a pretty good food wine.
