There is a fine balance on the nose between modern new wood aromas and pure raspberry fruits. On the palate, the wood is sweet and is nicely balanced with a helpling of chunky fruits and some elegant ripe flavors. Lovely acidity comes through toward the finish. This is a fine wine, both concentrated and yet elegant.
