In many ways, this is Valdemar's best wine in that it's always consistent and satisfying. The nose on this vintage offers a blast of sweet coconut and then black fruit aromas, and while there's acidity front and center it doesn't come across sharp. Instead, the focus is on plum and raspberry fruit and a finish that picks up steam.
