This is a bigger wine, but for the K Vintners lineup, it seemed less oversized than usual.  That is neither good nor bad, just a frame of reference.  Purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has black raspberries, black pepper, roasted meats and slight rubber note.  Medium to full bodied.  On the palate, nice black raspberry fruit with underlying char.  Medium tannins.  Lots of depth.  Delicious.  Nice finish.  This should improve a bit over the next five years and drink well for another seven to ten after that.  Great on its own, this would work well with charcuterie.
