Purple in color.  The nose is clean with black cherry fruit. Dusty.  On the palate, black cherries with some dark chocolate.  Very modern in style.  Delicious.  Light tannins.  I think this is about as good as it gets but no hurry.  It should have ten to twelve years at peak drinking.  This will go well with pasta in mushroom or cream sauce.
