Not ready for prime time...

This is a fine, if typical, St. Julian. Good nose of dark berries, pencil, some floral whiffs. Still fairly austere on the palate, lots of tannin. Everything open up with some air...Does this have enough flesh to balance out it's prominent backbone? Yeah, probably...hard to say right now, it's a bit shut down, check again in 3 years. Not exactly getting what you pay for here. Not yet anyway.
