Purple in color.  The nose has cassis, cherries and spice.  On the palate, this is simple and one dimensional but pleasurable.  Drinking well now.  Tannins all resolved.  More cherry fruit than cassis on the palate.  This is easy drinking and will work ok on its own or with a wide variety of foods.  Drink up in the next few years.
