Beautifully crafted wine. Brilliantly clear purple-ruby color with multiple persistent legs. The nose is all youthful cherry-berry fruit with overtones of violet, mineral, mushroom and gunmetal. On the attack the very forward, big fruit is all plush raspberry and bing cherry, medium-to-big-bodied, with vanilla and oak nuances; very fine-grained and well-integrated tannins on a long satin finish. Definitely ready to drink now, this baby has the stiffing to last at least 10 more years. WA rates this 93-95, and its a solid 94 in my book.
