Not as good as other vintages of this wine often are.  This is usually a stellar value.  That said, this is a solid wine and probably drinking at peak right now.  Ruby/purple in color.  The nose is nice with dark cherries, slight violets and spice.  On the palate, this is one dimenstional.  But that has nice red fruits.  Good finish.  A solid wine to be sure.
