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).
