Nose with red fruit and some alcohol, a little air and this gives way to a delightful Bordeaux-like funk and earth. This does carry over to the palate as well. The palate also has grapey fruit, just a hint of chocolate and berry. There is a petrol/fuel like quality to the wine and it seems very pure, crisp, fresh and structured. Also has an awesome leathery finish. Tannin and acid tell me that this wine is still young. The body is medium yet sort of light. The color is a nice dark purple. Very powerful wine. I would hold it for a few more years.
