This is at peak it would seem. Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, roses, chocolate and a bit or orange peel. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, this has a nice complexity. Cherries, some dried cherries over forest floor with some fresher notes, slight mushroom and char. Nice backbone of acidity. Nice finish. This begs for food. Mushroom pasta in a cream sauce would be a nice choice. Long finish. Drink over the next five to seven years.
