Nice to revisit this. At age 19, this is still youthful but starting to show some refinement. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose is great with chocolate covered raisins and some red raspberries. Lots of energy. Slightly viscous. On the palate, chocolate and raisins. Sweet, not cloying. Some heat on the finish. This should easily go another fifteen or twenty years. Great on its own or with some type of blue cheese.
