Few wines offer such a contrast between the bouquet and palate – this one is broodingly vegetal and somewhat leathery in the nose, then effortlessly sweet in the mouth, with lively red currant and black raspberry flavors mingling in harmony. Pleasurable on its own or with food, and much more successful than previous vintages.
