This is quite good but needs a bit of cellar time to hit its potential. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black raspberries, roasted meats, leather and slight white pepper. It seems tight and tannic on the palate. With air it has pretty sweet black raspberry fruit with some charred meat and an underlying mineral streak. Good finish. This has plenty of upside but if drinking before 2020, give it a nice decant.
