I really enjoyed this bottle as I have in many vintages. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black raspberries, spice, black pepper and a meaty note. On the palate, this is young and tannic. Certainly seems like there is some upside to holding these for a while. Chewy tannins. Lots of black raspberry fruit and a slight char. Long finish. This will be great on its own or with meaty/fatty dishes.
