Another great wine from this winery.  Purple in color, slight ruby at the rim.  The nose is very tight at first.  With air it shows some black cherry and spice.  On the palate, delicious black cherry fruit.  Showing quite young.  Firm tannins.  This bottle would have been better served being decanted for an hour or so.  There is still some upside development to go which is impressive at 15 years from vintage.  Works well on its own or needs bigger foods.  Should be good for another 15 years.
