Inky purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has dark cherries, coffee and dust. On the palate, sweet dark fruit. Cassis with a toffee/coffee note. Nice finish. Not showing a lot right now so it is a bit confusing whether its shut down or not. Given its pedigree, one would think so. It is good, but I would have expected great. So, probably hold for now or give it lots of air.
