Very dark opaque purple color. Very nice nose with blackberries, raspberries, flowers, with a hint of pepper and a faint earthy element. Medium body with decent acidity and soft tannins. Not as big on the palate as it is on the nose. Some mixed berries and spices, but not very concentrated. This is not as flavorful as past bottles. Earlier bottles were a little rough on the finish, but this one isn't. With some time and air, the wine added a little weight and the back-end filled out nicely. A licorice note developed. The wine was much better with the extra time.
