Inky purple at the core, ruby at the rim. The nose has raspberries and black raspberries with spices and a bit of char. On the palate, this is medium bodied. Nice black raspberry fruit over baking spices. Lively acidity gives this a nice energy level. Medium tannins. Good finish. This probably needs another five to seven years until peak and then should be good for at least ten after that. It will drink well on its own or with medium and heavy foods.
