Dark ruby in color, nose of ripe plum, white pepper, bay leaf, and a hint of tar and fennel. Taste was a bit grapey for me, probably cracked it a little to young. Good balance as the fruit fades to taste of leather with tannins and acid in check. Decent finish, but not evolved. I would give this a few more years to see if the jammy effect dissipates.
