Crimson rim with red-purple core. Quite dark, but with good clarity. Black fruit and mild sweet oak on the muted nose. Palate shows dark, plummy and overripe sweet cherry fruit, with high glycerin levels, medium-plus to high tannins, medium-minus acidity, some medicinal flavors, nice minerality, talc, full body, and some background forest scents. Long, 60+ second finish full of plummy fruit and powdery tannins. This is excellent with plenty of room to get better.
