A bit tight and didn't take notes the first two nights. Deep intense purple still with slightly faded rim. Bright raspberry fruit is still there, with, slight oak, mineral, cassis, pencil lead and faint green pepper. Medium weight with soft tannins(3rd day) and a lingering finish. Flavors of cassis, oak, vanilla, and red berries. I remember this being really remarkable the second night and will make sure to pick some up for later down the road.
