Dark ruby color. Nose of black cherry, band aid, some kirsh and spice. Similar on the palate. Very smooth except for some heat. Tannins have largely resolved. Very good but lacked the structure needed to be great.
Ruby red with slight lightening around the edges. Over about 1 h, the nose opens up to reveal crushed red cherry and cranberry, hung meat, some asian spice and underbrush. A very refined palate shows crushed, sweet-sour red berry liqueur, silky mouthfeel, medium acidity, no evidence of oak, fully resolved tannins and a long earthy, perfumed finish. Lovely indeed.
