Ruby red. Nice nose, this has lots of red fruit, tobacco, raspberry and strawberry jam flavors with a beautiful long finish. Clearly not too old and has lasted longer than predicted. The red fruit is still fresh and young. Did do well with PNP, but added complexity with 2 to 3 hours of air time. With the entry level this good it does make me want to seek out more and also try the higher level wines.
I still don't consider this quite mature. Coffee-like tannins linger on the finish, suggesting it's still got some aging left in it. The fruit is strong with a very good acid backbone. Drinking pretty well now, but I recommend leaving it in the cellar a couple more years.
