Drinking quite well right now.  Perhaps a bit earlier than prior vintages.  Deep ruby in color.  The nose is great with sour cherries, cherries, slight black licorice and baking spice.  On the palate, this is deep and complex.  Great texture; a bit soft and a bit velvety.  Lots of sour cherry and black cherry fruit.  It unwinds in the glass showing layers of fruit and damp forest floor.  Great acidity.  Nice finish.  There is some upside potential on this as it will continue to mature for a few years.
