Screw capped.  Ruby in color, but a bit flat.  There is a fair amount of volatile acidity on the nose.  Also some sour cherries.  Nice texture with light tannins.  On the palate, tart cherries.  A lot of acidity.  Long finish.  This probably would benefit from a bit of a decant as the VA did slightly blow off.  There is a nice complexity here.  It should have another seven to ten years left or maybe more.  It will pair well with roasted fowl.
