Purple, ruby at the rim. There is a bit of barnyard funk here. Also some black raspberry fruit. On the palate, there are firm tannins in this young wine, but there is also a nice silkiness to the texture. Black cherry fruit. Good balance. This will work with bigger foods. This retails for $20 and is an excellent value. A little air will help at this point or some short term cellaring (3 years).
