Deep red, starting to amber at the rim. Lots of oak on the nose, but doesn't overshadow very nice ripe fruit and floral aromas. Round and full on the palate, with ripe fruit and minerality. Tannins are fully ripe and softened at this stage. Lingering spicy finish. Drinking perfectly now, but would hold for several more years.
