Transparent deep garnet color. Using a screwpull, the cork came apart leaving a third behind, but no other issues. After decanting an hour, nice nose emerges with concentrated blackberries and cherries, and some wood and earth notes. Tastes with a delightful concentration of berry and cherry fruit flavors and is still tart, tannins are minimal, and some earthy, pebble notes, with a long, peppery, earthy and tart finish. Really delightful.
