Gorgeous wine. Pop and pour, this kept improving. Still needs another ten to twelve years to maturity. Ruby in color with slight brown hues, mostly clear and bright. The nose is great with cherries, black cherries, black tea, and moist earth. Full bodied. On the palate, this is layered but tight. Complex layers of earth, cherries and spice. Light tannins. Still has plenty of fruit and also oak to integrate. Long finish. Delicious. This should easily go another twenty to thirty years. Drink on its own or with any fowl or hearty sea food. This could easily work with a roast or steak as well.
