Very saturated deep red-ruby. Sappy aromas of black cherry, cola, licorice and maple syrup. Not particularly sweet but offers good ripeness for the year; initially a bit hard, but showed a pliancy with aeration, along with intriguing mineral and vegetal elements (Campbell calls the latter quality 'advanced greenness,' noting that it is a function of soil and site rather than underripeness.) Expands impressively on the back end.
Well crafted, if a bit on the austere side, well focused on a core of currant and black cherry, with light toast and cedary oak shadings. Finishes with firm, round tannins and a trace of mineral. Good structure.
