Great showing for this.  Still quite youthful.  Purple in color, to the rim.  On the nose, this has black raspberries, slight black pepper, hints of roasted meats and slight charcoal.  Grat rich texture.  Pure black raspberry fruit with great intensity.  Layers of fruit with earth.  Long finish.  Just a fantastic wine with at least a decade or two left.
