Deep ruby in color.  The nose has dark cherries, some smoke, some leather and a bit of spice.  Great silky but full texture.  On the palate, dark and sour cherries with some forest floor.  Shows a nice complexity.  It opens beautifully in the glass.  Great with food.  Long finish.  This wine has soul.
