Sweet but not overripe, baked dark cherries, sweet kirsch, bit of umami with some baked bacon fat on the nose. Good from the start (PnP). Medium+ tannins, body and flavor intensity, medium acidity. For quite some time I was not sure if the (smooth) tannins were slightly green or if this was just a herbal/mint component but with some time in the glass it became obvious that the latter is the case, maybe the Petit Verdot? Quite sweet kirsch on the palate (THE dominant component), with some meaty and herbal tones as well as a good structure. Not much development on day two. Overall, not my favorite aroma profile but a very interesting wine thanks to the unusual combo of Cab and Syrah.~
