This continues to improve. Inky purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, white pepper and grilled meats. On the palate, this has a nice juicy acidity. Medium tannins. Black raspberries layered with char and earth. Good finish. No hint of alcohol or heat. Needs bigger and/or spicy foods. This wine still needs about five years to peak. Then should be good for another 15 after that. Very concentrated.
