Hi idle RPM's at start up for V6

Hey there.....

So my new GC Limited has fewer that 300 miles on it thus far and I absolutely love it, but one of the odd things I am noticing is, at start up, a seemingly hi idle of ~1500 RPM's while still parked. This last for about 10 seconds and then gradually mellows out to around 900... Anyone else notice this?
