My humble opinion says hold for 2-3 more years and the slight imbalance should naturally correct.

Sehr würziges Bouquet, tintige Ansätze, blumige Noten, kühl, im Untergrund tabakig, Lorbeerblattnoten, dahinter etwas Alpenheidelbeeren. Im Gaumen erstaunlich fein zu Beginn, kerniges Extrakt zeigend, knochig bis fleischig in der Textur, mittlerer Körper mit hervorstehender Muskulatur.
