Had this two weeks ago and forgot to post it.

Dense, tightly wound cassis, chocolate and
cedar, not very expressive. Even the tannin was reticent. Decanted an hour
before serving, then double decanted until finished two and a half hours later.
By the end there was some perceptible change, but I'd say not to touch for at
least five years.
