Ruby in color with a touch of browning, clear and bright. The nose is classic with cherries, slight barnyard and spice. The tannins seem resolved and this is at peak. Layers of fruit and tertiary notes. Complex. Cherries, earthy dried fruit and flowers. Good acidity. Slight barnyard on the palate. Good finish. This is exactly what this wine should be at this point. If you live that, you will love this. Better with food such as a stew or vegetarian chili. Drink over the next five years.
