Deep dark ruby core with purple tinges all the way to the rim. Aromas of framboise , mint , anise , and a whisp of garrigue. All the usual suspects are present on the palate in a very concentrated fashion. Raspberry , blackberry , black cherry , melted black licorice , black pepper all throughout the palate in a medium to full weight. The fruit flavors were concentrated , but not over-the-top. Beautiful long lingering finish.

This is a truly good wine. First decanted for about 2.5 - 3 hours. Had it with oven roasted thyme potatoes, heavily reduced red wine sauce and rib steak, tones of violets emerged surrounded by leathery silky tones of dark red berries. Well balanced and just a touch of heat which I look for in a young red wine. My only question is what will happen in the future... Can't wait...
