      Double decanted 24 hours before serving. Sediment is primarily fine, sand-like sediment that requires the use of cheese cloth.

      Initial nose was big with grape jam. That nose settled down a day later. Very sweet but with alcohol heat that was combined with a decent acidity and tannic structure, all of which is masking the fruit somewhat. It’s coming together but still very young. It’s a long way fom maturing and needs at least a few more years to come around. I may upgrade this in the next couple of years. (89 points)
