Nice showing for this although still on the youthful side. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, black pepper, slightly meaty with b lack olives. Full bodied. Great liveliness. Nice texture. On the palate, black raspberries with underlying char and just a bit of black olives. Nice finish. This should continue to improve for another three to five years and drink well for ten to twelve more after that. This drinks well on its own and even better with food. Stews or chili is a nice choice.
