Lovely aromatics here: raspberry jam and fresh-baked brioche. The tart, tangy fruit suggests cranberries and plums; it's a light purple, beautifully clear and brilliant wine, a pleasure to look at as well as to savor. As before, it shows tremendous definition and balance; it's beautifully structured, transparent and concentrated.
