Great showing for this wine. Still, not close to maturity, but certainly no harm drinking now. Purple in color with very slight dark brown hues, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, blueberries, cigar, graphite, and a slight herbal/minty note. Medium tannins. Full bodied. On the palate, cassis with underlying char and minerality. Good acidity. Complex. Long finish. This is delicious and kept improving all night long. It will improve but was fantastic now. Great on its own, this needs big/fatty food now such as Prime Rib. Drink over the next twenty years.
