Great showing for this wine. Young, but tasty. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, graphite, and spice. Full bodied. On the palate, this is a big wine. It is jammy and full of fruit, so make sure you share it with people who like that style. I did, and they loved it. Lots of cassis, some blueberries with some spice and graphite as well. This is still primary with a lovely texture. Delicious. Long finish. This probably drinks better on its own right now but would work with a grilled steak. Drink over the next ten years or so.
