The first aromas that I got was raspberry. That excited me because I rarely get raspberry. Other aromas consist of your typical cassis and dark fruit. The raspberry that I was excited about quickly dissipated and I did not smell that again over the course of the evening.
I found the tannins soft. The finish had wonderful flavors of dark fruit dancing on my tongue.
I would have loved to give this wine a higher score, but for me none of the aromas really popped out. I really needed to concentrate to get any of that character.
No need to decant.
Tasted Oct 2020.
