Great showing for this wine as it near maturity.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose is great with black raspberries, slight black olive, white pepper and slight char.  Full bodied.  Great texture.  On the palate, crisp black raspberry fruit with plenty of depth.  Light tannins.  Underlying char and pepper.  Long finish.  A lot of alcohol but not noticeable on the nose or palate.  Delicious and a crowd favorite.  Srink over the next ten to twelve years.  A nice match with roasts or food off the grill.
