I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Sweet nose of blackberry/blackcurrant jam, spices like thyme, bay leaves come to mind, some woodiness. Full bodied with good fruit concentration, some earthiness. Tannins are modest. Some sourness and acidity on the finish but overall it's softer, fruitier and not as rustic as I thought it would be. A Thursday dinner Bordeaux.
