This 2004, matured in small French oak (hence Nouvelle Vague) is a smooth, sensational blend of grape varieties, rich and at the same time structured, and quite likely to be the wine out of the 10 TBAs Kracher has produced in 2004 that will age beautifully. But enjoy it now for the honey, the dry botrytis and the sweet orange peel and apricot flavors.
