Decanted and poured over the course of 1 hour. Dark garnet red color. Comes out of the bottle completely expressionless, but develops a nose dominated by cigar box, rosewater, marzipane, and cassis. Very soft on the palate, but it gains weight with air exposure. Flavor profile is slanted toward cassis, blackberry, tobacco, and bing cherry. Finish is initially very soft and round, but gets longer and better with increased air exposure. Perfect balance and a wine that can absolutely be drunk right now, although I suppose it’ll keep well for many years.
