Wow. This is drinking great but may yet hit that 100 point mark. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, blueberries, smoke, gravel and graphite. All of those come thru to the palate along with some roasted meats. Firm tannins. Drunk over two nights, it was fresher on Night one and deeper on night two. Fantastic both nights. This will probably follow that path as it matures. Will work with meats and heartier foods.
