Young and well-stuffed, showing lots of promise. Fairly opaque in color, with a bouquet of blackberries and lots of smoky, toasty oak. Fairly extracted—almost sappy—in the mouth, but with good acidity to keep it from becoming cloying. Shows very good depth of cassis and black licorice flavors. Long finish with full tannins, dark fruit and vanillin oak flavors. Approachable now; better in two years.
