Fresh. Lots of fruit but with a lithe touch and feel. Blueberries, violets, spice and toasted pumpernickel with a touch of licorice. It is fruit-driven but by no means boring. There is a brilliant savory side to this wine, especially on day two. Hard to believe that there are this many things to write about a wine at this price point, but you must taste it to believe. It finished bright and long. Ever so fresh and definitely an 'any day of the week' wine.
