What a gorgeous wine.  Blind, I would probably guess a very good Burgundy at about 10 years old.  Deep ruby in color.  The nose is very nice with some funk on it.  Loads of cherries with some darkness to them.  Spice.  On the palate, the texture is really a highlight.  Silky yet burly.  Loads of black cherries on the palate.  It unwinds in the glass to show layers of damp earth with fruit.  Long finish.  This will easily do another decade and probably more but I am not sure if gets better.  And it is so good right now.  It will go with any food Pinot Noir works with.
