This is in a great spot right now. Still youthful but drinking well. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, roasted herbs and slight roasted meats. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, black raspberry fruit with underlying char. Also some black pepper. Deep. Long finish. This is near peak but should go another eight to twelve years. Very nice on its own, this would also work well at the dinner table with slow cooked meats or veggies.
