Purple in color.  The nose is very nice with cassis, tobacco and spice.  On the palate, this has a nice texture.  A lot of depth but the wine is very tight now.  It kept improving all night long and probably needs  at least a decade.  But, that patience will be rewarded with at least a few points of upside potential.  In the glass it shows nice cassis fruit, cigar box and earth.  Good balance.  $75
