This is in a great place right now. Ruby in color with slight browning. The nose has cherries, slight raspberries, slight tar and slight forest floor. Medium bodied. Tannins are mostly resolved. On the palate, nice cherry notes with some forest floor underneath. Good acidity. Nice finish. This is at peak. it should be consumed over the next five to seven years. It goes great with pasta and cream sauce and will work well with meat based dishes too.
