Overall, give it some space and time to breathe and open up. It is a nice red wine that is an excellent offering to the line given its space to age just a bit more. At its current age, enjoy it with the red meats where it enhances and brings out the flavors and blends together. They marry well.. Always Always Decant minimum 1-2 hours
