Excellent wine.  Still youthful and with upside potential.  Purple in color.  The nose has cassis, spice, cloves and slight crunchy leaves.  On the palate, this is delicious.  Great texture.  Juicy cassis fruit layered with earthiness.  Long finish.  Another one of those wines where each sip makes you want more and then the bottle is emptied.  Beguiling.
