Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose has cassis, dust and nutmeg.  On the palate, this is tight.  Great cassis fruit.  An underlying spice quality.  There is a nice ripeness here.  It needs some time to integrate and has some upside potential.  It does seem riper than earlier vintages but well within bounds.  Great wine.
