Opaque ruby. An exotic perfume evokes red berries, cherry pit, lavender and Asian spices. Tangy and precise, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of spicecake. Clean and linear on a finish that shows fine-grained tannins and intense mineral lift. This singular Chateauneuf du Pape gets no sulfur additions.
