Dull purple in color.  The nose is nice.  Fresh and earthy with some cherries.  On the palate, this has bright cherries.  A bit lighter than other vintages.  It faded quickly in the glass.  Still quite good but this probably needs to be consumed in the next few years if this bottle was representative.  More red cherries than black cherries.
