consumed after a few hours in a decanter. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with cassis, char, and spice. Full bodied. On the palate, this has a silky lush texture. Very tannic. Lots of cassis with some smoke/char. Good balance. Nice finish. This needs another seven to ten years to get close to maturity, then it should drink well for ten to fifteen more. This will need big flavors in food to not get overwhelmed. Maybe a Bacon, Mushroom, Cheeseburger?
