This is a vintage that does drink well at such a young age. Inky purple, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose has boysenberries, black cherries, roasted herbs, and black pepper. Medium bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, clay, black raspberries, slight floral quality and spices. This has some depth but it unwinds in the glass. Delicious. It will mature and may improve but it is drinking well now. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years. This would work great, of course, with Cassoulet, but it will also work well Indian food.
