This bottling is a two-block selection from the highest spots in the vineyard. Don't be fooled by the lightness of the flavors, but do pay attention to the refined, elegant structure. Raspberry and cherry flavors, abundant acidity and a mineral underpinning all contribute, along with almost a year in 50% new French oak.
