This seemed to be in a great place right now.  Ruby in color.  The nose is cherries, slight sour cherries and slight anise.  On the palate, this is still youthful but showing nice depth.  Slightly viscous.  Sour cherries and cherries with underlying anise and minerals.  Good finish.  This will work with a wide variety of foods, even sea food.  Probably needs another five years until peak and then should drink well for another decade after that.
