Limpid ruby-red. Fresh red and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of allspice and white pepper. Juicy and precise, showing bright, energetic lift to the bitter cherry and raspberry flavors. Closes with zesty, spicy cut and lift, leaving a suggestion of red berry skin behind. This lively wine sure doesn't act like it came from a hot vintage.
