Ruby in color with blacks swirls, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is very deep.  Spices, black cherries and slight cough drop notes.  On the palate, lots of black cherry fruit and firm tannins.  Good balance.  Nice finish.  This needs a few more years to develop and come together and should drink well for another ten to fifteen after that.  Lots of upside on cellaring this.  It will work well with heavier meat based dishes such as Pappardelle al cinghiale (Pasta with wild Boar).
