I really enjoyed this (more than the group I was tasting with actually). It has a great texture and is open and drinking well right now. It probably won't make old bones. For $27 it is fairly priced for immediate drinking. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has fresh cherries, cherry powder and slight earthiness. On the palate, this has big cherry fruit. Slight tannins. A wonderful silky texture. A bit sour cherry on the finish. Seems food friendly as well.
