Had this last night with cast iron seared filet, quinoa and caprese salad. Nose is pretty ripe and loaded with black currant and tobacco. Some game and funk on the nose by way of a touch of brett. Soft and medium bodied on the palate with very nice freshness. Sappy on the finish. Still has some tannins to resolve and there is ample fruit. As a matter of fact, this is ripe enough to remind me just a little of some Super Tuscan-like fruit. Incredibly good food wine that is an easy drink and very likable. Not yet at peak, but probably not more than 5 years from it. Drinking well. Purchased for $32 in 2005 and 13% alc.
