Bright medium red. Very spicy aromas of red cherry, raspberry and cinnamon. A step up in volume from the village offering but also bracing and energetic, with lovely juicy intensity to the raspberry fruit. Still on the lean side but nicely perfumed, with enough material to support its nearly peppery acidity. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and noteworthy lift and length.
91+/100 Vinous/Stephen Tanzer
