Showing just a bit of age at this point, but still has some development left.  Ruby/purple in color.  The nose is initially tight but opens with some celery and sandalwood.  With air, cherries and a bit of earthiness come in.  Even later some merde as well.  On the palate, this is tart black cherries.  Tingly acidity.  Again, it opens with air to show more fruit.  At the same time, more tannins emerge as well.  Surprisingly tannic at this point, but enough fruit to warrant further ageing as well.
