A really great wine. Inky purple in color. The nose has cassis, chocolate, char, slight camphor note and coffee. This is a rich, big wine. Delicious. Flavors of cassis, blueberries with slight chocolate over spice and char. Juicy acidity. Medium tannins. Long finish. This needs about 5 to seven more years until peak and then should be great for ten to twenty more years. It will work with big foods like steak or roasts.
