This fine red seems to pull in several directions. It's ripe in the fruit department yet brimming with tangy herbs. And the up-front oak could probably use a year or two to fully integrate. In the meantime, decant it and enjoy the dark berries, bitter chocolate and smoky overtones (hiddenbench.com).
