Color has evolved to a bright garnet, still deeply hued. Aromas are spicy, with cassis, earth, cedar and toast. Tannins have softened considerably, and indicate that the wine is in fine shape for current consumption, with dark berry, violet, cocoa, and spice flavors, all backed up by balancing acidity, with a long finish, and lingering brown spice notes.
