Purple in color, ruby at the rim. Opaque and bright. The nose is dusty with black cherries, cedar and a slight herbal note. On the palate, this is medium bodied. Light tannins. Nice black cherry fruit with some underlying oak. Nice acidity. Nice finish. This should continue to improve for a few more years and drink well for ten more after that. It is a solid wine right now but it will be interesting to see where it goes. This will drink better with food. Roasted meats would be a good choice.
