Bright, snappy and somewhat high in acidity, but also vibrant and excellent as a whole. The fruit falls squarely into the plum, raspberry and red currant spectrum, while that acidity pushes the wine to run and run. A dynamo with length, character, structure and angularity. Probably not for those who prefer dark, lush RDDs. Drinkable now but could still use another five years of time on its side.
