Elégance is a five-grape Bordeaux-style blend, sourced from a single vineyard. Sweet oak scents waft up from the glass, a lush melding of various toasts, over pretty raspberry flavors. The wine is sensuous and elegant, already quite drinkable, and seems to slip away gently before you are quite ready for it to leave.
