Violet red with a touch of brown. Not decanted. Really nice nose of cherries, dark berry, spice, a touch of mocha, and stems/pine needles/mint. Full fruit on early and mid palate. Finishes a little 'fat', but acidity (and heat?) pick up within a few seconds and prolong the flavors. Nice surprise. Was lovely with lamb sausage, carmelized onions and roasted sweet peppers. Even my wife (who normally 'objects' to 'grapey' Novy style), loved this one.
