Great showing for this wine. A solid vintage and a very good producer really combined for a success. Deep ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, slight black cherries, anise, and slight tea leaves. Full bodied. Ripe cherries on the palate with underlying forest floor. Light tannins. Lots of depth and complexity. Also, delicious. Great acidity. Long finish. Great value for a wine of this quality. This is not yet at peak, maybe another 3 to 5 years, and then should dirnk well for ten to fifteen after that. A great match for pasta bolognaise.
