This is one wine that I almost never open this young. But, you know what? It was great! Sure, it might improve. Probably will, but this is delicious right now. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with boysenberries, slight black raspberries, slight floral notes, and a bit of asphalt. Full bodied with firm tannins. That said, they are a great example of polished tannins despite being mouth coating, they are inviting. Layers of boysenberry fruit over gravel with slight crushed fall leaves. Long finish. This probably will continue to develop over the next ten to twelve years. It should drink well for twenty years. This is delicious on its own right now but will work well with hearty stews, chilis of a nice steak.
