Drinking well right now.  Not yet at peak but I don't know how much better it will get.  Purple in color.  Wonderful nose of black cherries, green tobacco, cigar box and leather.  On the palate, this is tightly layered.  It opens in the glass.  Black cherries, leather and earth.  Good balance.  Not a huge wine, but not shy either.  Goes well with food.  Outstanding wine.
