This wine is a double-edged sword. If you chill it a little bit, it still shows flavours of rich forest fruits with zingy acidity and a more medium body, but if you keep it at room temperature, you will experience a really full-bodied wine with more leather characteristics and a sharper acidity towards the end of your sip. I really recommend decanting it one hour before serving it, whether it is chilled or not and I really think it works perfectly with something meaty or a rich stew. Some people comment that it's still too young, but also barring in mind that it's from 2014. You can keep it for another year if you like to store wine in your cellar.
