This is in a great place right now. Mature but still fresh with good fruit. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has chocolate, cherries, raisins and slight alcohol. On the palate, the chocolate covered cherries predominate but some raisin and a but underneath char. slight heat but just barely. Sweet but not a lot. Long finish. No hurry on this, it has a while but at a very pretty stage. Great on its own, it will work with cheese, or chocolate desserts.
