Bright ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose combines cassis, plum, medicinal herbs, fruitcake, menthol, loam and licorice, lifted by a peppery quality. Juicy and moderately sweet, with strong, brisk acidity framing and intensifying the flavors of bitter cherry and dark chocolate. Not especially fleshy but primary, vibrant and classic. Builds nicely on the energetic finish. I would not be at all surprised if this extremely youthful wine merited a higher score a decade hence.
