Deep ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black raspberries, slight chocolate and a bit of spice. Medium bodied. Slightly sweet. Good acidity. On the palate, black raspberry and slight blueberry fruit. Long finish. Tasty. This is drinking well on its own and would work nicely with a chocolate dessert. Drink over the next ten years.
