Deep dark purple, opaque. Tasted over two nights, plan being to give it plenty of air ahead of a birthday meal the second night. As it turned out, a great plan! First night just one big glass, with no food. Dark cherries and black pepper, lots more there, nice, but indecipherable, overpowering, almost overwhelming. Put in fridge overnight. Second night tasted superb alongside roast veal. Again dark cherries and pepper, but now smoother, easier on both the nose and tongue, with kirsch, dark chocolate, blueberries, licorice, iron, and still more flavours surfacing as the last drop was drunk.
