Ruby in color, clear and bright.  The nose has red currants and spice.  On the palate, this is easy drinking.  Some Red currant fruit.  Plenty of spice and lumber.  No tannins.  Light.  Probably should have been drunk earlier as the oak seems to have outlasted the fruit though there is some fruit left.
