Nice amber colored edges. Amazing pure cassis, tar and dark cherry nose. After 30 minutes the palate shows a pure curranty-cab profile that is somewhat two dimensional, but very very pretty indeed. The fruits in attendance are curant, blackberry, dark chery, and black plums.There are some secondaries like tar, cedar and anise and a wonderful fine line of tannins.
