Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, cassis, slight floral notes and cedar. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, this has ripe cassis flavors with a touch of leather and slight dried floral notes. Medium tannins. Good finish. This needs a few more years to open and then should drink well for another ten to twelve more. This would work well with a bacon-cheese Quiche.
