Terrific, but still young and will be so much better in five years. Right now, the edges are have softened only slightly and the palate is still very youthful and ripe, with vibrant red cherry and berry fruits, lots of structure, the palate still shows a lot of grip, with tremendous drive or thrust propelling the palate forward. The tannins have softened a bit, but the structure is still apparent. This is still very much on the young side and should last for decades. From my cellar, to Afghan Kebab with Greg, Brad and Josh.
Drinking great right now. Rich and smooth with mouth watering acid and complex aromas of flowers, raspberries, soy, leather and iron. Had it with porcini and pork fettuccine with parmigiano and thyme, a perfect combination.
