This was quite good. It is still young but drinking great. It should continue to evolve and mature and should be good for another decade and probably more. Inky purple in color, ruby at the rim. On the nose, this has nice bramble, black cherry fruit, raspberries, pepper and spice. A very nice lush texture. Black cherries on the palate with underlying char and dry earth. Long finish. This is delicious and continued to open though it didn't take long to finish the bottle. Would work well with spicy foods and grilled foods.
