Update Oct 2017: Hitting its stride, with arch-classic cedar and cassis flavours. Med-full bodied, with tannins just starting to soften. Not profound, but quite delicious.
Decanted an hour. Dark ruby starting to amber at rim but still youthful. Classic cedar nose with hints of small berry fruit; oak very well integrated. Fully ripe, med to full bodied, with the tannins still quite grippy. Nice complexity, with lots to stick your nose into. I think this is going to last quite well. Bought this em primeur for I don't remember how much. We'll see in a few more years if it was worth the price.
