Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is dusty with black raspberries and black pepper. Medium bodied. On the palate, black raspberries with slight bitter cherries on the finish. Long finish. This improves with a bit of air. Obviously young, this might still improve but either way, it should drink well for the next five to eight years. A nice quaff on its own, it will work well with (veggie) burgers off the grill.
