This one was a ride. I tasted it right after opening and I was not impressed. The alcohol was hot and in your face. The flavours were unclear with very angular tannins. Fast forward an hour and a couple of carne asada tacos, this wine bloomed and became a force. A bold blend of ripe fruit, oak, vanilla and firm tannins that fade nicely.
