Inky purple in color, bright.  On the nose there is nice black raspberry fruit with black pepper.  On the palate, this is a big, fruity wine.  Lots of black raspberry fruit.  Slight mineral backbone.  Deep but tight.  I think a few more years of cellaring will bring out even more of its potential.  Although it drinks cooler climate, it is a big wine.  Nice texture.  Long finish.
