Garnet in color, opaque and bright.  The nose is quite tight.  Even with a lot of coaxing, this seemed closed for business.  On the palate, this is a bit more open, especially with some air.  Black cherry fruit, some cherries and spice.  Good mouthfeel and balance.  Long finish.  This needs another five to ten years and should drink well for ten to fifteen after that.  This would work well with a Wild Mushroom Risotto.
