This is in a great place right now. It won't get better although it will continue to mature. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose is gorgeous with Black cherries, garrique, violets and tapenade. On the palate, the texture is incredible. Soft yet structured. The wine just glides down the palate. Lots of black raspberry fruit with some black cherries layered with a bit of earth. Great balance. Long finish. This will go great with meat dishes and anything roasted. No hurry, it should be at this level for a decade and even then some.
