This is an outstanding wine, but it didn't deliver what I was looking for on this evening.  The folks I was drinking it with felt otherwise and it was there favorite wine (tasted blind).  Ruby in color with dark swirls, mostly clear and bright.  The nose hasw black raspberries, black cherries, baking spice and roasted herbs.  Full bodied with firm tannins.  On the palate, this has black cherry fruit.  It seems deep but not giving up much.  With air some black raspberries and even blueberries emerge.  Hard to get past the tannins.  Firm finish.  This needs some time to come together and open up.  Hold for five more years and drink over the next fifteen.  This will work well with Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine syle steak).
