Great showing for this wine. Pop and pour, it took a couple of hours to really get going. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with cassis, cedar, slight black cherries and minerality. Full bodied but not over blown. Firm tannins. On the palate, precise cassis with under lying minerality. It grows in the glass. Long finish. Delicious. This is still young and needs about seven to ten more years until peak. It should be good for another fifteen to twenty after that. It drinks well on its own and will work great with heartier fare such as pot roast.
