($27) Ruby-red. Bright, perfumed nose offers sexy raspberry, strawberry and cherry liqueur aromas accented by subtle notes of fresh rose and exotic spices. Lively and brisk, the with tangy acidity providing focus and cut to the pure red fruit flavors. Really delicious wine, with expansive, sweet raspberry and cherry flavors on the zesty, long finish. This can be enjoyed already, but I'd hold it for at least three years.

It took about 1/2 hour in a decanter before it really started to open up. The nose on it amazingly resembled a Bordeaux (similar to the cedar present in a St Julien - very impressive). The color was inky purple right to the edge of the glass. The wine possesses flavors blackberry jam and black cherry with notes of vanilla from the new oak. The fruit is in balance with the substantial tannins present. However, this wine is very young now and should easily improve over the next five years and will most likely hit its stride in the next 2 or 3 years.
