Popped and poured and aired in the glass for a little while. Dark opaque garnet to purple color. Painfully young right now, but what great potential. Nose is steeped in blackberry, black currant, and tons of tobacco and pencil shavings. Stern structure, but really nice sweet fruit paired with a salty dryness and some sous-bois. Lovely wine that has many, many years to go until maturity. Went tremendously well with NY Strip Steak tonight and roasted beets. Can be had for $15.99 at the Wine Exchange right now, and a laughable tariff for a wine of this quality.
