Smelling like a pastry shop, the wine offers red currant and warm brioche scents that recall raspberry tarts and freshly baked breads. It's made by cousins Dan and Christian Tudor, whose family has made wines for thousands of years in Croatia, and grown table grapes since the 1920s in California. The body is fairly light, delivering tart raspberry flavors; decent acid makes the mouth water.
