Boy, this is in a nice place right now. Delicious and enjoyable and seems to have put on a bit of weight and showing more complexity than it did on release. Purple in color, clear and dark. The nose has nice black cherry fruit with a bit of dust and a bit of bramble. Slight tannins. The black cherry fruit continues to the palate. There is some depth here along with a bit of warm gravelly notes. Long finish. This makes easy drinking and was just as good on Day 2. It is great on its own and will go well with BBQ and other hearty or spicy foods. Great value!
