Cranberry and rhubarb flavors define the fruit, although some hints of blackberry and cassis manage to steal into the finish. This is a light, elegant, high acid wine with polished tannins and a lovely transparency. The fruit flavors, though deceptively light, are penetrating and the finish just glides on and on, like that last bite of blueberry pie.
