Ruby/purple in color.  The nose is nice with coffee, black raspberries and black olives.  Very much a Washington meets the Northern Rhone nose.  On the palate, this is tannic.  Black cherry fruit.  Tight layers of fruit and earth.  Good acidity.  Long finish.  This continued to improve in the glass all night.  Still very tight and young, there is certainly plenty of upside potential left.  It will be interesting to see where this is in five years as it approaches peak.
