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.
