From an excellent vintage whose wines are slow to come around, this one is drinking well. Seems to be shy of peak but getting close. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cherries, slight tobacco and spice. On the palate, this has medium body. Cherries with some intertwines tobacco. Some depth if not a lot. Good acidity. Worked well with food. Nice finish. I believe this was under $30 on release which is a fair price.
