This showed quite well and was quite well received.  Purple in color, with some ruby swirls.  The nose is dusty with cherries, black cherries and baking spices.  On the palate, this has fresh cherries and black cherries.  It is slightly sweet/ripe.  It did take a few minutes to open and then kept opening.  There is an underlying forest floor note.  Good finish.  Very food friendly but drinks well on its own.  Has a decade left in it.
