Gorgeous. This wine is sexy and almost seamless. Although youthful, it is drinking beautifully at age ten with a decade or two left. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, sandalwood, blueberries, and cedar. On the palate, just a great texture. Deep, it shows nice layering as it unwinds in the glass. Cassis and blueberries with minerals and char. Quite smooth. Long finish. It is delicious. Worked great with food as well.
