Ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is dusty with some cherries.  Some wet tea leaves come out with air.  On the palate, cherries and black cherries over some damp forest floor.  Good balance.  More "traditional" in style.  This should improve with some short terms ageing.  Drink over the next ten to twelve years.  This would work well with chicken liver pâté (or is that chopped liver).
