Inky purple in color. The nose is very tight. Black raspberries. spice/oak. Primary. On the palate, this is lush with a great texture. Black raspberry fruit. Seems deep but impenetrable. Firm tannins. Doesn't budge much with air. Plenty of upside on this but it needs a decade to sort itself out and open up. For now, its enjoyable but seems like the better course is to show patience.
