($45) Ruby-red. Smoky, vanilla-accented red and dark berry aromas display a seductively sweet, spicy character. Medium-bodied and crisp, with tangy raspberry and blackberry flavors showing good thrust. Lively and sweet at once, with good persistence and energy on the back, leaving a zesty impression of berry skin.
