Beautiful showing. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, anise, blueberries, spice, cedar and black pepper. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is still young but showing a lot of depth and some complexity. Delicious. Black raspberries, blueberries, coffee and anise with underlying char. Great energy and liveliness. Long finish. Drink over the next thirty years. Great on its own, this would be a nice accompaniment to a standing Rib Roast.
