This wine is in the beginnings of its prime drinking window IMO. It should be good for at least another decade. Purple in color. The nose is great with black cherries, black raspberries, cherries, raw meat, and floral notes. On the palate, this has a great almost soft texture. Slight tannins. Layers of black raspberries, black cherries, licorice and earth. This is a very clean wine. Nice acidity especially for the vintage. Long finish. This kept improving all night. It worked well my pasta dish after being open for a few hours.
