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.
