Decanted 2 hours. Needed it. Huge Red Mountain tannins prevailed at first. Much more approachable on Day 2, when things had mellowed out a bit. This could use another 2-3 years in the cellar for sure. On Day 2, nose is still closed down, giving up only a tiny bit of blackberry fruit. On the palate, this is big on the attack, blackberry & some earth, quite rich, but utterly overwhelming. Finish goes on for awhile, but is quite astringent still. Sweet vanilla oak is also quite present on the finish. Serious potential here, with ample decant and/or cellar time. This really just needs more time to integrate, and shame on me for popping prematurely. Ha.
